Kronebreen is a tidewater glacier that is is one of the largest glaciers on Svalbard. The glacier flows from an expansive ice field to the head of the Kongsfjorden, which is connected to the Atlantic Ocean. Just before it drops into the fjord it merges with the smaller Kongsvegen glacier. Kronebreen and other glaciers in the Kongsfjorden are susceptible to ocean temperatures warming because they are positioned close to a strong current of water which brings warm water from the south to the interior Arctic.
