Glacier Front at Raudfjorden, Northwest Spitsbergen National Park, Svalbard

Research shows that the glaciers in Svalbard are melting and getting smaller. This is taking place because the climate has become generally warmer in the past 100 years. Higher air temperatures have brought a more rapid retreat in the last 10 years. For any form of publication, please include the link to this page: www.grida.no/resources/3574
