Record #119483:

The size and frequency of icebergs and bergy bits derived from tidewater glaciers in Kongsfjorden, northwest Spitsbergen / J.A. Dowdeswell, Carl Fredrik Forsberg.

Title: The size and frequency of icebergs and bergy bits derived from tidewater glaciers in Kongsfjorden, northwest Spitsbergen / J.A. Dowdeswell, Carl Fredrik Forsberg.
Author(s): Dowdeswell, J. A.
Forsberg, Carl Fredrik.
Date: 1992.
In: Polar Research. (1992.), Vol. 11(2) (1992)
Abstract: Dimensions and frequency of occurrence of 295 icebergs and bergy bits were measured during summers of 1991 and 1992. Size--frequency distributions are compared with those from East Greenland fjords and epicontinental Barents Sea. Melt rates and survival times are calculated, from observations on temperature of fjord water and iceberg velocity. Discusses implications for iceberg survival, sedimentation within fjords of Spitsbergen, and transfer of iceberg-rafted debris onto continental shelf and into deep ocean.
