Durham University Svalbard 98

This was a scientific expedition undertaking a multifaceted study of the characteristics and long-term behaviour of two surge-type glaciers in Reindalen, Central Spitsbergen. A further study of iceflow dynamics had to be abandoned, as survey stakes left in the ice by another team a year earlier had melted out due to an unusually warm ablation season. Detailed analysis of the results will keep the party busy for some months to come.
