Record #164669:

Correspondence. Fracturing and sediment deposition at the glacier surface by jökulhlaups: a common occurrence / Wilfred H. Theakstone.

Title: Correspondence. Fracturing and sediment deposition at the glacier surface by jökulhlaups: a common occurrence / Wilfred H. Theakstone.
Author(s): Theakstone, Wilfred H.
Date: 2001.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (2001.), Vol. 47(158) (2001)
Abstract: Draws attention to 21 records of subglacial water being forced to glacier surface in response to sudden influxes of water to the bed or blockages to subglacial drainage systems. Phenomena observed include water spouts, deposition of sediment on glacier surfaces and ice fracture. Suggests that such events may be common, but rarely observed because of their short-lived nature.
