Mass balance Ny-Ålesund glaciers
NPI currently monitors mass balance on four glaciers in the Kongsfjorden area of north-western Spitsbergen, Svalbard (Fig. 1). They are:
• Austre Brøggerbreen (BRG), with measurements from 1967.
• Midtre Lovénbreen (MLB), with measurements from 1968
• Kongsvegen (KNG), with measurements from 1987.
The first two are among the longest continuous high arctic glacier mass balance time-series.
