The AA. analysed samples of suspended sediment in stream water (i.e. runoff) for Sr-isotope ratios from 4 locations in the Erdalen area of the Oppstryn drainage basin. The Oppstryn area is located downstream of Erdalsbreen and Vetledalsbreen (Erdal and Vetledal Glaciers), which are branches of Jostedalsbreen, the largest plateau glacier in northern Europe. The highest value was measured in a sample of suspended sediment particles from the glacial lake located below Erdalsbreen, and the lowest value was measured in the sandur area below the confluence of Stordalselva and Vetledalselva. The results are significant and sufficient for application in future estimates of weathering rates
