Ice volume changes of Ariebreen, Spitsbergen, during 1936-1990-2007

Abstract
The main aims of this contribution are to determine whether Ariebreen follows such retreat pattern and to quantify the retreat it has experienced, in terms of area, thickness and volume changes, to estimate the average mass balance equivalent to the ice volume change during the period under investigation, and to estimate the volume of ice presently stored in Ariebreen. The main tools to accomplish this will be the analysis of digital terrain models (DTM) of the glacier surface corresponding to different dates, and the radio-echo sounding of the ice body to determine the present ice volume.
