Date: 1998.
In: Boreas. (1998.), Vol. 27(1) (1998)
Abstract: Tidewater glacier complex at head of Kongsfjorden, NW Spitsbergen, has advanced rapidly several times since Neoglacial maximum. Two such advances, in 1869 and 1948, are widely interpreted as glacier surges. Four lake levels are identified, two with rock-cut shorelines implying some lake stability. It is concluded that rapid advance of this tidewater glacier may be simply example of non-climnatic ice-marginal fluctuation, rather than surge. Second ice-dammed lake, formed after 1869 as ice retreated, still exists. It is unlikely to last long.
