Svalbard surge dynamics derived from geometric changes
Geometric changes on a sample of Svalbard glaciers were studied using subtraction of repeat digital terrain models to determine early surge-stage dynamics. Changes in surface features were alsoExpand

Photogrammetric methods applied to Svalbard glaciers: accuracies and challenges
Use of digital images is expanding as a tool for glacier monitoring, and small-format time-lapse cameras are increasingly being used for glacier monitoring of fast-flowing glaciers. StereoscopicExpand

Surge dynamics in the Nathorstbreen glacier system, Svalbard
Nathorstbreen glacier system (NGS) recently experienced the largest surge in Svalbard since 1936, and this was examined using spatial and temporal observations from DEM differencing, time series ofExpand

Comparison of landslide forecasting services in Piedmont (Italy) and Norway, illustrated by events in late spring 2013
Abstract. Only few countries operate systematically national and regional forecasting services for rainfall-induced landslides (i.e., debris flows, debris avalanches and shallow slides), among themExpand

Recent surges on Blomstrandbreen, Comfortlessbreen and Nathorstbreen, Svalbard
Introduction Very few glaciers in Svalbard are known to have shown more than one recorded surge (Hagen and others, 1993). A decreasing frequency of glacier surges in Svalbard was suggested byExpand

Quiescent-phase dynamics and surge history of a polythermal glacier: Hessbreen, Svalbard
Hessbreen is a 5 km 2 , polythermal glacier in southern Spitsbergen. It is believed to have surged at the end of the 19th century, and another surge started in 1969, not in 1972 as earlier studiesExpand

Velocity structure, front position changes and calving of the tidewater glacier Kronebreen, Svalbard
Abstract. Glacier calving and retreat constitute a substantial portion of the ablation of tidewater glaciers and is therefore of interest in climate models in order to get more accurate predictionsExpand

Management of the hernial sac in inguinal hernia repair
There is no consensus on the best management of the indirect hernial sac in groin hernia surgery. The aim of this study was to investigate to what extent different management options are associatedExpand
