Record #164624:

Prevention of outburst floods from periglacial lakes at Grubengletscher, Valais, Swiss Alps / Wilfried Haeberli, Andreas Kääb, Daniel Vonder Mühll, Philip Teysseire.

Title: Prevention of outburst floods from periglacial lakes at Grubengletscher, Valais, Swiss Alps / Wilfried Haeberli, Andreas Kääb, Daniel Vonder Mühll, Philip Teysseire.
Author(s): Haeberli, Wilfried.
Kääb, Andreas.
Mühll, Daniel Vonder.
Teysseire, Philip.
Date: 2001.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (2001.), Vol. 47(156) (2001)
Abstract: Describes research performed to aid hazard prevention measures and associated construction work. Presents studies of periglacial lakes and moraines using photogrammetry, seismic refraction, acoustic echo-sounding, hydrological tracing and gravimetry. Concludes that an adequate observation system would allow potentially hazardous consequences of any future atmospheric warming to be recognised at an early stage. Hazard prevention measures described include destruction of a thermokarst lake, to which paper is dedicated.
