First mass balance measurements ever at Eyjafjallajökull yesterday, in total two points this spring. 8.5 and 10.5 m long cores, a lot of snow! Collaboration project between @66north and @jorfi_iceland.
In collaboration with @66north, @jorfi_iceland did the first mass balance measurements at Tindfjöll, a small valley glacier near the south-coast in 60 years. Snow depths up to 7 m and tephra layers from the 1947 Hekla eruption!
Lots of blue ice and melt water on this #landsat8 false color infrared image from last Sunday of Skeiðarárjökull glacier after some heavy rainfall 🛰
https://islenskirjoklar.is/ is the new location for all glacier related data for Icelandic glaciers! Mass balance, historical images, outlines and many other interesting things! Formally opened today. Only in Icelandic but English version soon to follow!
