Record #160968:

Hydrology of active rock glaciers: examples from the Austrian Alps / Karl Krainer, Wolfram Mostler.

Title: Hydrology of active rock glaciers: examples from the Austrian Alps / Karl Krainer, Wolfram Mostler.
Author(s): Krainer, Karl.
Mostler, Wolfram.
Date: 2002.
In: Arctic, Antarctic, and Alpine Research. (2002.), Vol. 34(2) (2002)
Abstract: Study of three active rock glaciers in Austrian Alps finds discharge controls are principally weather conditions, thermal properties of debris layer and mechanisms controlling flow of meltwater. Obvious seasonal and diurnal variations in discharge are shown. Water temperature remains below 1°C for melt season. Electrical conductivity (generally low) is also characterized by seasonal and diurnal variations, inversely related to runoff. Pattern of discharge is similar to that of glaciers, though significantly lower through ice remaining within debris layer.
