Record #112420:

A numerical simulation of supraglacial heat advection and its influence on ice melt / R.D. Moore.

Title: A numerical simulation of supraglacial heat advection and its influence on ice melt / R.D. Moore.
Author(s): Moore, R. D.
Date: 1991.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1991.), Vol. 37(126) (1991)
Abstract: Investigates, by means of numerical simulation, advection of sensible heat by supraglacial runoff layer during rainfall and consequences for spatial variations of melt. Simulations indicate that advection cannot influence macroscale melt patterns and surface morphology, but can possibly cause microscale variations in melt. One-dimensional energy-balance models, which have been applied normally over glacier surfaces, should remain valid for most conditions.
