Record #188241:

Changes in the extent and geometry of Scott Glacier, Spitsbergen / Piotr Zagórski, and 3 others.

Title: Changes in the extent and geometry of Scott Glacier, Spitsbergen / Piotr Zagórski, and 3 others.
Author(s): Zagórski, Piotr.
Date: 2008.
In: Polish Polar Research. (2008.), Vol. 29(2) (2008)
Abstract: Analyzes changes in geometry of Scott Glacier, NW Wedel Jarlsberg Land, observed during season 2005/06 against background of multiannual data from 1990-2005 and longer term means. Except for surges, glacier has undergone almost continuous recession since Little Ice Age. Describes application of GIS to multidimensional data analysis and visualisation. Changes include recession of glacier front, and surface area and elevation changes. Season 2005/06 saw accelerated recession and surface lowering compared to background mean within tongue, surface lowering comparable to 1990-2005 mean in ablation zone above tongue and surface elevation increase in upper firn field. Discusses climatic and morphological factors responsible and compares observations from those from other Spitsbergen glaciers.
