Migala, Krzysztof ; Sobik, Mieczysław (1982)

Two thermal springs were discovered in the Raudfjellet region in Spitsbergen. They had a total discharge of about 0.1 m3/sec and were found in metamorphic carbonate rocks on bare ground under the eastern part of Torellbreen. Water with temperatures between 12.3 and 6.5°C caused thermoerosive phenomena to take place at the end of the eastern Torellbreen snout and formed an ice sheet covering the ground after cooling and freezing.
