Thesis characterizing the glaciofluvial environment of the Linnébreen glacier in Svalbard, Norway and subsequent effects on high Arctic lacustrine sediment deposition. Climate forcings on the glacier control sediment production from the glacier and therefore should be recorded likewise in the lake sediment profiles. By understanding the relationships between local climate and sediment flux, a better understanding and correlation between climate and deposited sediment can be established.
