Tem­pe­ra­te water in Spitsbergen’s fjords

Tem­pe­ra­te Atlan­tic water has ent­e­red the fjords on the west coast of Spits­ber­gen, resul­ting in a decre­a­sing chan­ce for a lar­ge-sca­le solid ice-cover in coas­tal waters com­pa­red to last win­ter. The rela­tively strong ice-for­ma­ti­on of last year may be amongst the rea­sons: the cold, sal­ty water that sinks down gives way to inflowing Atlan­tic water­mas­ses.

In the end, the wind con­di­ti­ons are decisi­ve for fjord ice for­ma­ti­on.
