Tangled Up in Blue: Narratives of Glacier Change in Southeast Iceland

Jackson, Jerilynn 06 September 2017 (has links)
This dissertation reports the findings of an ethnographic field study that examined the plurality of glacier-related narratives, knowledges, and practices of people living on the southeastern coast of Iceland. A growing amount of research is directed at glaciers and society from a variety of disciplines within the social sciences, however, a crucial gap in research remains centered around local perceptions, values, beliefs—of how and why people and ice interrelate today and how such experiences compare from one glacier community to the next. Everywhere glaciers are located on this planet, there are people, and the two have been interacting for the entirety of human history, but very little is known about the nature of people-ice relations. To better understand how people and ice interrelate, I completed nine months of field work from September 2015 through May 2016 on the southeastern coast of Iceland. Iceland was chosen as field site because people and ice on the southeastern coast exist in extreme proximity. Local glaciology models predict these glaciers will lose 25-35 percent of present volume over the next fifty years. As such, to better understand the nature of relations in this rapidly changing environment, alongside focus groups, participant observation and preliminary field work, I interviewed 84 Icelandic women and 112 Icelandic men ranging in age from 18 to 96 years old using a semi-structured, in-depth ethnographic interview method. The results of this dissertation demonstrate other ways of looking at glaciers and people, highlighting profound connections, the power glaciers enact upon communities, the perceptions of glaciers as alive and self-aware, the plasticity of glaciers to verify multiple conflicting narratives all at once, and the intertwined positive and negative consequences glacier change engenders for local communities. I argue glaciers have rich social and cultural context and variability that is largely unstudied, that glaciers are contested, controversial, and that what is widely assumed does not match what is happening on the ground. The aim of this work is to contribute to the development of a global geography of glacier change that includes the physical and social dimensions of ice across the cryosphere. / 10000-01-01

Reconstructing the Surge History and Dynamics of Fisher Glacier, Yukon, 1948-2022

Partington, Gabriel 22 June 2023 (has links)
Glacier surges are periods of dynamic instabilities which result in semi-regular alternating periods of slow flow, termed the quiescent phase, and fast flow, termed the active phase. This study uses remotely sensed imagery, digital elevation models, glacier velocity datasets, and in situ oblique photographs to reconstruct the surge history and dynamics of Fisher Glacier to better characterize surging in the southwest Yukon and assess the risk posed by this glacier’s surges on surrounding regions. Fisher Glacier has previously been identified as a surge-type glacier but, until now, it had not been the focus of any detailed studies. We find evidence that Fisher Glacier underwent two surges during the study period from 1948 to 2022. Visual analysis of characteristic surge features on the glacier surface show that the glacier was in quiescence from <1948 to at least 1963. In 1972, an advanced terminus position, intense surface crevassing, and high point velocities suggest that a surge had recently terminated, corroborating a previous report of a surge occurring around 1970. This was followed by a 40-year quiescent phase from ~1973-2013 during which the terminus underwent consistent retreat, totaling a terminus-wide average of 2058 ± 8 m (up to 3567 ± 8 m in certain sections). Velocities during the quiescent phase were low (generally <50 m yr⁻¹), but underwent a slow multidecadal increase starting around 1985, spreading from the center of the glacier towards the head and the terminus. A pre-surge buildup phase beginning in ~2008-2010 resulted in velocities of up to ~200 m yr⁻¹. The active phase of the surge initiated in winter 2013/14 and was characterised by a velocity increase to ~1500 m yr⁻¹ that propagated both up- and down-glacier from the surge nucleus in the mid-region (~22 km upglacier from the terminus). Velocities peaked at >2100 m yr⁻¹ in the winter/early spring of 2016 at ~12 km from the terminus. The surge resulted in a mean terminus-wide advance of 868 ± 8 m, intense surface crevassing and a downglacier transfer of mass from the reservoir zone to the receiving zone. The terminus area increased in elevation by a mean of ~80 m. In July 2016, the surge rapidly terminated within a period of ~1 month, although velocities at the head and the terminus took a few more months to slow to quiescent values. Since then, average annual velocities along the centerline have been lower than pre-surge velocities, the crevasses have closed up, and the rate of ice surface elevation change has been negative across the entire glacier. Fisher Glacier’s surge dynamics suggest predominantly hydrologically controlled surging, but with some aspects more representative of thermally controlled surging. Thus, we propose that more than one mechanism might be at play in controlling its surges, although further research is required to confirm this. Under current climate conditions, it is unlikely that Fisher Glacier could dam the nearby Alsek River and cause a glacier lake outburst flood.
