Volume Changes of the Glaciers in Sarek and Kebnekaise since the End of the Little Ice Age Linus Engqvist  Since the end of the little ice age in the middle of the 19th century  the glaciers in the north of Sweden has experienced extensive melting and net loss of volume, but are all glaciers experiencing equal loss of volume or are there differences between them?  The purpose of this study is to examine 53 different glaciers in the Sarek and Kebnekaise regions in the North of Sweden and by using remote sensing techniques calculate the relative volume changes of the glaciers and then examine if there any differences between them with regards to massifs, historical area and ablation zone. The conclusion is that even though there are differences in loss between massif and ablation zone location the most significant factor to relative volume loss is the glaciers original area, but because of the limitations in the study further research is needed to better estimate the volume of the individual glaciers.
