Abstract

Maps are presented for the subglacial topography of Storglaciären, Isfallsglaciären and Rabots glaciär in northern Sweden. The maps are results of radio-echo soundings. Isfallsglaciären consists of one isolated basin above the ice fall uhereas storglaciären is situated in a valley which is divided into three basins. No depressions were found in Rabots glaciär. The distribution with elevation was obtained for ice thickness, bedrock and ice surface areas, and ice volumes. Data for Storglaciären: area A = 3.1 km, ice volume V = 306 10 m, average ice depth h = 99 m, maximum ice depth H = 250 m. Data for Isfallsglaciären: A = 1.3 km, V = 93 10 m, h = 72 m, ht = 220 m. Rabots glaciär: A = 4.1 km, V = 346 10 m, h = 84 m, ht = 175 m.
