This video was created from time lapse pictures taken at one minute interval in an ice cave, melted during fieldwork at the Svartisen subglacial laboratory. The camera was placed on the bedrock below 200 metres of ice. The video shows the cavity closing due to the pressure created by the overlying glacier.
Location : Engabreen, Svartisen ice cap, NORWAY
Experiment set up by SVALI researchers (ncoe-svali.org/) coming from the University of Oslo (NO) and the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NO).
