How important is terminus cliff melt?: a study of the Canada Glacier terminus, Taylor Valley, Antarctica / Karen J. Lewis, Andrew G. Fountain, Gayle L. Dana.

Title: How important is terminus cliff melt?: a study of the Canada Glacier terminus, Taylor Valley, Antarctica / Karen J. Lewis, Andrew G. Fountain, Gayle L. Dana.
Author(s): Lewis, Karen J.
Fountain, Andrew G.
Dana, Gayle L.
Date: 1999.
Abstract: Study of glacier terminus cliffs on Canada Glacier, Taylor Valley, Antarctica, 1995-96 and 1996-97, found enhanced meltwater runoff. Meteorological measurements indicate this is almost entirely due to melt, driven by shortwave radiation and varying with location as result of varying exposure. Suggests terminus melt is important in maintaining streamflow during cool periods, and therefore a cause of extending seasonal streamflow in dry valley area. In special issue: Glaciers of the Southern Hemisphere.

Offprint: Global and Planetary Change. Vol. 22(1-4) :105-115.
