Melting, runoff and the formation of frozen lakes in a mixed snow and blue-ice field in Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica / Jan-Gunnar Winther, H. Elvehøy, C.E. Bøggild, K. Sand, G. Liston.

Title: Melting, runoff and the formation of frozen lakes in a mixed snow and blue-ice field in Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica / Jan-Gunnar Winther, H. Elvehøy, C.E. Bøggild, K. Sand, G. Liston.

In: Journal of Glaciology. (1996.), Vol. 42(141) (1996)
Abstract: Meltwater drainage or accumulation basins, and frozen lakes were observed during the Norwegian Antarctic Research Expedition (NARE) in 1989-90. These features were also detected via Landsat Thematic Mapper images from February 1990. During NARE 1993-94 further studies revealed sub-surface melting and runoff even with negative air temperatures, as a result of penetrative solar radiation. Temperatures in blue-ice 1m below the surface were six degrees higher than under snowpacks.
