Abstract

This paper presents data on hydrochemistry and suspended sediment dynamics from a small glaciated catchment in Svalbard. Bertram River is distinguished by a system of waterfalls which divides the catchment in 2 parts : an upper glaciated part located on mountainous plateau, and a lower part where an abraided plain has been formed within the bottom of the Ebba River valley. On the basis of observations it is concluded that a particular role in the conditioning of glaciofluvial transport was played by an extreme weather event in the form of föhn-type wind, observed in the decline of ablation season and also by waterfalls which diversified the fluvial activity
