Storglaciären

Hanson 1992

Enquist 1910

Storglaciären flows out of two cirques on the flanks of Kebnekaise (visible peak in the upper row) at 68°N in Sweden. Its mass balance has been monitored since the 1940s. The area has been visited regularly for a much longer period, so a few old photographs are available to demonstrate long-term environmental change. This glacier is accessible from Tarfala Research Station, and has been the site of a number of field studies, including attempts to measure till deformation and studies of flow speed in relation to internal hydrology.
