Remote-sensing studies of Kvitøyjøkulen, an ice cap on Kvitøya, north-east Svalbard / Jonathan L. Bamber, J.A. Dowdeswell.

Title: Remote-sensing studies of Kvitøyjøkulen, an ice cap on Kvitøya, north-east Svalbard / Jonathan L. Bamber, J.A. Dowdeswell.
Author(s): Bamber, Jonathan L.
Dowdeswell, J. A.
Date: 1990.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1990.), Vol. 36(122) (1990)
Abstract: Airborne 60 MHz radio echo-sounding data were collected over 250 km of flight track. These were combined with Landsat imagery to provide ice-surface and bed topographic information and inferences about thermal and climatic conditions on ice cap. Results suggest significant basal melting and warmer thermal regime than would be expected from geographical location. Further analyses suggest considerable anthropogenic contamination of precipitation falling on island.
