Record #125626:

Most recent observations of the drainage of an ice-dammed lake at Russell Glacier, West Greenland, and a new hypothesis regarding mechanisms of drainage initiation / Peter G. Knight, Andrew J. Russell.

Title: Most recent observations of the drainage of an ice-dammed lake at Russell Glacier, West Greenland, and a new hypothesis regarding mechanisms of drainage initiation / Peter G. Knight, Andrew J. Russell.
Author(s): Knight, Peter G.
Russell, Andrew J.
Date: 1993.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1993.), Vol. 39(133) (1993)
Abstract: Letter. Frequent sudden drainage of unnamed lake has occurred, and new observations made after most recent drainage (1991) allow additional conclusions to be drawn. Seasonal lowering of ice surface by ablation is identified as previously neglected factor that can affect lake drainage. Model is suggested whereby drainage might occur due to different mechanisms in different years, making prediction difficult and having implications for geomorphic effects of drainage.
