Establish a new runoff station for long-term monitoring in the outlet of Linnevatnet and upgrade of runoff station in the Ny-Ålesund area (Bayelva and Londonelva in 2018) and in Isfjorden area (De Geerdalen in 2018)

Thank you for adding your research project to the growing pool of knowledge about the research going on in Svalbard and its surrounding waters!

As we would like you to know a bit about what is going on in Svalbard in your discipline and fieldwork surroundings, we have selected some projects that should be interesting for you to have a look at. There are {{related}} projects registered in RiS that match with your keywords, and below you will find links to the 3 that have the most relevant match.

As we all work to reduce our environmental footprint, we want to give you an easy way to find projects that have fieldwork close to you, so you can contact the project owner and coordinate your logistics whenever possible. This could also help you save some expensive costs ;) There are {{close}} projects registered in RiS that have registered their fieldwork sites within 10 km from you, and below you will find links to the 3 closest fieldwork locations.

The main aim of the SIOS InfraNOR project is to successfully operate a multidisciplinary and state-of the-art observational system in Svalbard for marine, terrestrial and atmospherical research. In this subpart we have work on upgrade of the existing runoff station at Bayelva and De Geerdalen (2018) with new senores and to establishment of a new runoff station in Linneelva close to the outlet of Linnevatnet for long-term monitoring and linked to the existing data from the area. The upgrade and new station will provide new and more accurate knowledge on runoff, sediment transport and related parameters and will be important for the monitoring of climate change. The site at Linneelva is especially well suited since good quality measurements could be carried out due favourable river condition and limit amount of sediments. This is opposite of glacier feeded braided-river system with large sediment transport which makes direct measurement of runoff, and sediment transport are difficult without large construction in the river on intensive field camping. The site at Linneelva will in addition contribute to the already environmental monitoring carried out in Linnevatnet, Linnedalen and on the glacier. The runoff station must be established by a pressure and temperature sensor install in the river and this has to be connected to data logger in a new established mast close to the river bank. Time-lapse camera could be placed at the boathouse close to the river outlet. The mast and sensor is planned mounted in summer 2020 as part of the annual service of runoff station in Ny-Ålesund and Isfjorden. Transport from Longyearbyen could be boat helicopter. In connection with the establishment, discharge measurement must be carried out in order to establish a rating curve.
