Record #188304:

Origin and significance of lateral meltwater channels formed along a temperate glacier margin, Glacier Bay, Alaska / Kent M. Syverson, David M. Mickelson.

Title: Origin and significance of lateral meltwater channels formed along a temperate glacier margin, Glacier Bay, Alaska / Kent M. Syverson, David M. Mickelson.
Author(s): Syverson, Kent M.
Mickelson, David M.
Date: 2009.
In: Boreas. (2009.), Vol. 38(1) (2009)
Abstract: Documents morphology and genesis of lateral meltwater channels formed along margin of Burroughs Glacier, using more than 40 years of observations. Channels have formed on sides of emerging nunataks and nested channels are up to 200 m long. Describes course of meltwater through system, reporting that 0 to 8 channels form per year, at spacing and rates controlled by land surface slope, ablation rate, erodibility of substrate and stream discharge. Shows that lateral meltwater channels are not definitive evidence of cold-based or polythermal ice. Examines potential for reconstructing palaeo-ice sheet slopes.
