Temporal snowmelt dynamics on fast ice in Kongsfjorden/Svalbard are studied for the period 1990-2003, using visible and near-infrared channels of the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR). Long-term radiation data from an adjacent Baseline Surface Radiation Network station, as well as extensive glaciological and meteorological field measurements on the melting ice in 2002 and 2003, are used to validate a snowmelt index derived from the satellite data. This study shows that the remotedoi:10.3402/polar.v28i2.6113 fatcat:46bewy3rbretbh7eysa62ecfpa
