GLACIERS ON THE MOVE

See our exhibition at the northernmost museum in the world in Svalbard!

ABOUT

When Science meets Art

Glaciers On The Move is led by Glaciologist Dr. Heidi Sevestre and Engineer of Physics and Photographer David Wrangborg. Our project is funded by the Svalbard Environmental Protection Fund.


Our mission? Create an exhibition on surging glaciers for the Svalbard Museum that will be displayed at the end of 2019. 

Through this project we aim to bring awareness and educate the locals and visitors of Svalbard on the beautiful yet dangerous surging glaciers of the archipelago. To collect all the material necessary for the exhibition we will be travelling to Svalbard twice in 2018.

WHAT ARE SURGING GLACIERS?

The dynamics of surging glaciers are one of the large big enigmas in Glaciology. In a time of global glacier recession, surging glaciers can suddenly "wake up" and accelerate at a pace over several meters per day for a few years, destroying everything on their way. Surging glaciers create large scale hazards for populations leaving around them, but are also some of nature's visually most dramatic phenomena.

FIELD CAMPAIGNS

Two field campaigns have taken place over the course of 2018 on the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard, located in the High Arctic: one in the Spring, and one in the Summer.
