The Svartisen Subglacial Laboratory in POLARFRONTEN magazine (NR. 4/2013, Denmark)

by Ib Salomon

The world's only laboratory under a glacier is Norwegian. In the Svartisen Subglacial Laboratory researchers are to gain new insights into the world's many small glaciers, for example on friction between glacier and rocks under it and their response to climate change.

Verdens eneste laboratorium under en gletsjer er norsk. I Svartisen Subglacial Laboratory er forskerne med til at skaffe ny viden om verdens mange små gletsjere, f.eks. om friktionen mellem gletsjeren og klipperne under den og om deres reaktion på klimaændringerne.

The Svartisen Subglacial Laboratory in QUEST magazine (02/2013, the Netherlands)

by Paul Serail Quest magazine (NL)

Under thin ice: 200 meters below the surface of the Norwegian glacier Engabreen, researchers drill with hot water a cave in the ice. Aim: To discover how the glacier moves. The door of the Svartisen Subglacial Laboratory is open only a few times per year. Quest could join in.

[Original text]

Onder glad ijs: 200 meter onder het oppervlak van de Noorse gletsjer Engabreen, boren onderzoekers met heet water een grot in het ijs. Doel: ontdekken hoe de gletsjer beweegt. De deur van het Svartisen Subglaciale Laboratorium gaat maar een paar keer per jaar open. Quest mocht mee.
