Abstract

Changes of geometry of Austerdalsisen between 1982 and 1987 illustrate the importance of the calving boundary condition in driving glacier flow. Understanding calving is important for management of hydroelectricity power generation schemes, such as those of the Svartisen area, which incorporate glaciers ending in lakes
