Krossfjorden, Svalbard

Year: 2010 Taken by: Peter Prokosch
The Arctic Climate Impact Assessment (ACIA 2004) predicts an average 5-7 degree rise in temperature in Arctic regions by the year 2100. Krossfjorden is on the West coast of Spitsbergen, in the Svalbard archipelago, and meets Kongsfjorden at the mouth, near Ny-Ålesund. Kongsfjorden has received much attention as an excellent site for investigating the potential impacts of climate change, with the melting of tidal glaciers being linked to climate variability.
