Brøggerhalvøya (the Brøgger Peninsula) in western Spitzbergen is a world class location for investigating the relationship between changes in glacial environments and climate. Melting ice since the last glacial period has resulted in the preservation of a superb raised beach sequence.  Today, glaciers across the Peninsula have continued to experience a long-term decline in volume of ice and length since monitoring experiments began in the 1960s (Dyurgerov and Meier, 2000; Bruland and Hagen, 2006), largely as a result of regional warming over the twentieth century.
