Record #111442:

Interaction between a reservoir and a partially flooded glacier: problems during the design stage / D. Vischer, M. Funk, D. Müller.

Title: Interaction between a reservoir and a partially flooded glacier: problems during the design stage / D. Vischer, M. Funk, D. Müller.
Author(s): Vischer, D.
Funk, M.
Müller, D.
Date: 1991.
Publisher: Paris: Commission Internationale des Grandes Barrages
Abstract: Discusses proposal to create new reservoir in Switzerland with high storage level that would cause flooding of terminus of Unteraargletscher with consequent calving into existing Grimselsee. Studies show that major glacier retreat would follow and consequent increase of storage volume, which would allow smaller dam to be built. Also discusses problem of calving waves which could splash over dam.
