Tobredalen, Svalbard

One of our projects was to investigate the formation of slush flows in the Tobredalen. A slush flow is a slurry of meltwater, snow and ice that flows down-stream like an avalanche. One way in which we decided to study this was to monitor the snowpack in the weeks leading up to the slush flow. As well as taking snowpack measurements every few days, every evening one person went out into the valley bed to take photographs from various vantage points, which is when I took this.
