Record #152239:

Characteristics of Khumbu Glacier, Nepal Himalaya: recent changes in the debris-covered area / M. Nakawo, H. Yabuki, A. Sakai.

Title: Characteristics of Khumbu Glacier, Nepal Himalaya: recent changes in the debris-covered area / M. Nakawo, H. Yabuki, A. Sakai.
Author(s): Nakawo, M.
Yabuki, H.
Sakai, A.
Date: 1999.
In: Annals of Glaciology. (1999.), Vol. 28 (1999)
Abstract: Uses satellite data to estimate longitudinal distribution of ablation rate and flow velocity for ablation area of Khumbu Glacier, Nepal Himalaya, where glacier ice is covered with supraglacial debris. Estimates were made of recent change in ice thickness, showing rate of thinning large near Everest Base Camp where surface cover is thin, but small at lower sites.
