Exploration of glacial dynamics and hydrology through sub-glacial hydrochemistry; a study of the outlet glacier Blåisen, Hardangerjøkulen in central Southern Norway. (completed)

The study of the chemistry of Glacier Rivers yields knowledge and understanding of subglacial hydrological systems and basal orchestration, through various measurements of outlet glacial river flow.

The outlet glacier Blåisen, Hardangerjøkulen

In order to obtain understandings of subglacial hydrology systems such as geochemical weathering rates, bedrock, water storage cycles and organisms; the measurements and analysis of electrical conductivity, pH, solute content and discharge will take place. The research aims of this paper are to better understand the subglacial characteristics such as water storage cycles, geomorphology and hydrological systems of the outlet glacier Blåisen, Hardangerjøkulen in central Southern Norway and apply it to the general knowledge of sub glacial hydrochemistry as well as hydrology that helps in the understanding of glacial dynamics and characteristics.
