Short summary
Sea ice conditions in two fjords of Spitsbergen (Isfjorden, Hornsund) have been investigated between 2000-2014 using manual interpretation of 16555 satellite images. The result is two time series dividing the fjord area into "fast ice", "drift ice", and "open water". A significant reduction of fast ice coverage has been found comparing the time periods 2000-2005 and 2006-2014. A new concept, called "days of fast ice coverage" (DFI), is introduced for quantification of fast ice cover.
