Record #173500:

Water flow through temperate glaciers / Andrew G. Fountain, Joseph S. Walder.

Title: Water flow through temperate glaciers / Andrew G. Fountain, Joseph S. Walder.
Author(s): Fountain, Andrew G.
Walder, Joseph S.
Date: 1998.
In: Reviews of Geophysics. (1998.), Vol. 36(3) (1998)
Abstract: Synthesizes recent advances into conceptual model of water movement through a glacier and examines related topics of glacier dynamics, glacier-induced flooding and prediction of runoff from glacierized drainage basins. Focuses on interactions between components of drainage system, emphasizing temperate alpine glaciers, but including ice sheets. Uses data from South Cascade and other glaciers. Discusses hydrology of firn and near-surface ice, but not seasonal snowpack. Covers englacial and subglacial hydrology and associated models, subglacial sediments, temporal evolution of drainage system, water storage and outburst floods, and links between glacier hydrology and dynamics, including surging. Outlines unified model of water flow through temperate glacier, discusses future research, and provides glossary.
