Fleetwood, Åke (2011)

Surface water and precipitation samples were taken from Bjørnøya Island and analysed for various constituents. The ion contents of the waters are related to the different kinds of rock found in this area. An ettempt has been made to calculate the evaporation from the concentrations of different ions. An approximate evaporation rate of 72% has been found, which corresponds to meteorological estimations.DOI: 10.1111/j.2153-3490.1969.tb00424.x
