Hydrology, Sediment transport and erosion in Longyeardalen

This is a long term monitoring program performed by The University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS) and Geological Survey of Norway (NGU). The project is focused upon: 1. Hydrological monitoring in Longyearelva 2. Invesitgation of suspended sediment and bedload transport in Longyearelva 3. Investigation of riverbed erosion

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.

Summary

This is a long term monitoring program performed by Dr Aga Nowak (The University Centre in Svalbard UNIS), and Dr Lena Rubensdotter (the Geological Survey of Norway NGU and The University Centre in Svalbard UNIS) In this program we invesitgate hydrological and geomorphological changes occuring in Longyeardalen. Our focus is so far on the Longyearelva river from Longerbreen and Larsbreen down to its outlet to Adventfjorden. We also expand our research to other aspects which results in various associated projects. However, the core invesitgation during each melt-season (May-October) focuses on: 1. Hydrological monitoring in Longyearelva 2. Invesitgation of suspended sediment and bedload transport in Longyearelva 3. Investigation of riverbed erosion 4. Investigation of glacier recession upon 1-3
