Abstract [en]

During 2007 we launched a geodetic campaign on the Svalbard ice cap Vestfonna in order to estimate the velocity field of the ice cap. This was done within the frame of the IPY project KINNVIKA. We present here the velocity measurements derived from our campaigns 20072010 and compare the geodetic measurements against InSAR velocity fields from satellite platforms from 1995/96 and 2008. We find the spatial distribution of ice speeds from the InSAR is in good agreement within the uncertainty limits with our geodetic measurements. We observe no clear indication of seasonal ice speed differences, but we find a speed-up of the outlet glacier Franklinbreen between the InSAR campaigns, and speculate the outlet is having a surge phase.

Without the logistical support of IPY-KINNVIKA we would never had managed this work. Piotr Glowacki's engagement for IPY-KINNVIKA was of paramount importance to us. The logistical support from The Swedish Polar Research Secretariat, The Polish Polar Station, The ship and personnel of RV Horyzont II of the Polish Marine Academy, The ship and personnel of the Norwegian coast guard Svalbard, UNIS and the Norwegian Polar Institute are acknowledged for excellent support. We further thank Naviga and Airlift A/S for their valuable services. The Governor of Svalbard is to be thanked for giving us permission to use the old IPY-3 station Kinnvika. All hands of IPY-KINNVIKA are thanked for making our common endeavour into such a success. Special thanks to Per-Olof Edvinsson, Janne Johansson, Lasse Tano and Ake Wallin for service in the field, and the field hands by Harvey Goodwin, Ulf Jonsell, Denis Samyn, and Peter Sjogren. Trond Eiken and Jon Ove Hagen are acknowledged for sharing DGPS data and service at the Oxford station. Financial support by The Nordic Council of Ministers and The Swedish Polar Research Secretariat was paramount to IPY-KINNVIKA. VP acknowledges funds from the Swedish Research Council. TS acknowledge the EU Framework 6 Program INTEGRAL Project and from the ESA project GlobGlacier. Further, the InSAR data is acknowledged by (ERS-1/2 SAR data courtesy C1P.2611, (c) ESA; ALOS PALSAR data courtesy AOPOL.4086, (c) JAXA; DEM of Nordaustlandet (c) NPI). We acknowledge SPIRIT-SPOT 5 stereoscopic survey of Polar Ice: Reference Images and Topographies during the fourth International Polar Year (2007-2009) for imagery used for navigation and mapping. Installation of GPS systems on Frazerbreen and Franklinbreen was supported by NERC grant NE/F011466/1 awarded to PC and AH. Finally, we thank the two anonymous reviewers and the editorial skills of Paula Kankaanpaa for assistance into the final product.
