Record #195071:

Glaciers of Bhutan - an overview / Shuji Iwata.

Title: Glaciers of Bhutan - an overview / Shuji Iwata.
Author(s): Iwata, Shuji.
Date: 2010.
In: U.S. Geological Survey professional paper. (2010.), Vol. 1386-F7 (2010)
Abstract: Presents map of river basins and glacier distribution of Bhutan Himalaya, estimating for each of six glacier types total number, area and volume, and average thickness. Compares altitudes of termini of debris-free and debris-mantled glaciers and examines: relationship between equilibrium line altitudes and climate; glacier terminus variations between 1963 and 1993; and glacier lakes with potential for outburst flooding.
Notes:
