Ablation on debris covered glaciers: an example from the Rakhiot glacier, Punjab, Himalaya / L.E. Mattson, James S. Gardner, Gordon J. Young.

Title: Ablation on debris covered glaciers: an example from the Rakhiot glacier, Punjab, Himalaya / L.E. Mattson, James S. Gardner, Gordon J. Young.
Author(s): Mattson, L. E.
Gardner, James S.
Young, Gordon J.
Date: 1993.
Publisher: Wallingford, Oxfordshire: IAHS Press
In: Snow and glacier hydrology. Proceedings of an International Symposium held at Kathmandu, Nepal, 16-21 November 1992. (1993.),
Abstract: Describes differential ablation rates on this debris-covered glacier, and compares and contrasts results with those from similar investigations situated within and outside this region. Direct measurements indicated sharp increase in ablation as debris-cover thickness increased from 0 to 10 mm, followed by decrease in ablation as debris cover increased beyond 10 mm until critical thickness of 30 mm when any further ablation is suppressed from that expected on debris-free ice.
