Record #126351:

Can avalanche activity alter the pattern of snowmelt runoff from high-mountain basins? / Fes A. De Scally.

Title: Can avalanche activity alter the pattern of snowmelt runoff from high-mountain basins? / Fes A. De Scally.
Author(s): De Scally, Fes A.
Date: [1993]
In: Eastern Snow Conference. Proceedings. ([1993]), Vol. 50th Annual Meeting ([1993])
Abstract: Avalanches can affect subsequent generation of snowmelt runoff because of two main changes occurring during avalanching: concentration of snow mass and increase in ambient temperature resulting from avalanche's fall to lower elevation. Balance between these changes largely determines whether rate of meltwater production from individual avalanche deposits is increased or decreased in comparison to undisturbed snow. Effect on temporal pattern of snowmelt runoff at basin scale depends on proportion of snow cover in basin that has been disturbed by avalanching and on balance between delayed and accelerated meltwater production from all avalanche deposits in basin. Field work in Punjab Himalaya, Pakistan, and Cascade Mountains, British Columbia.
