Record #164652:

The surges of Variegated Glacier, Alaska, U.S.A., and their connection to climate and mass balance / O. Eisen, W.D. Harrison, C.F. Raymond.

Title: The surges of Variegated Glacier, Alaska, U.S.A., and their connection to climate and mass balance / O. Eisen, W.D. Harrison, C.F. Raymond.
Author(s): Eisen, O.
Harrison, W. D.
Raymond, C. F.
Date: 2001.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (2001.), Vol. 47(158) (2001)
Abstract: Establishes empirical relation between variable timing of surges of Variegated Glacier and cumulative balance at a point in accumulation area. Relation is then used to hindcast past surges and compare datings with results obtained by other methods. Correlates local annual balance at a site in upper part of the glacier with meteorological data from three stations. A complete record for one of these stations is reconstructed with the aid of data from the other two and used to estimate annual balance at the glacier site back to 1905. Finds that surges do not occur at regular time intervals, but when cumulative balance has reached a particular well- defined level.
