Holocene glacier variability and Neoglacial hydroclimate at Ålfotbreen, western Norway
Glaciers and small ice caps respond rapidly to climate perturbations (mainly winter precipitation, and summer temperature), and the mass-balance of glaciers located in western Norway is governed mainly by winter precipitation ...
Holocene multi-proxy environmental reconstruction from lake Hakluytvatnet, Amsterdamøya Island, Svalbard (79.5°N)
High resolution proxy records of past climate are sparse in the Arctic due to low organic production that restricts the use of radiocarbon dating and challenging logistics that make data collection difficult. Here, we ...
Reconstruction of glacier variability from lake sediments reveals dynamic Holocene climate in Svalbard
The Arctic is warming faster than anywhere else on Earth. Holocene proxy time-series are increasingly used to put this amplified response in perspective by understanding Arctic climate processes beyond the instrumental ...
Arctic Holocene proxy climate database – New approaches to assessing geochronological accuracy and encoding climate variables
(Copernicus Publications, 2014-08-29)
We present a systematic compilation of previously published Holocene proxy climate records from the Arctic. We identified 170 sites from north of 58° N latitude where proxy time series extend back at least to 6 cal ka (all ...
Climate in Svalbard 2100
(The Norwegian Centre for Climate Services (NCCS), 2019-01)
This report was commissioned by the Norwegian Environment Agency in order to provide basic information for use in climate change adaptation in Svalbard. It includes descriptions of historical, as well as projections for ...
