Record #199718:

Expanded and recently increased glacier surging in the Karakoram / Luke Copland, and 7 others.

Title: Expanded and recently increased glacier surging in the Karakoram / Luke Copland, and 7 others.
Author(s): Copland, Luke.
Date: 2011.
In: Arctic, Antarctic, and Alpine Research. (2011.), Vol. 43(4) (2011)
Abstract: Discloses results of review of published literature and satellite imagery from late 1960s onwards, revealing 90 surge-type glaciers in Karakoram mountains, of which 50 have not previously been described in detail. Itemises surface features indicative of surge-type behaviour such as looped moraines, rapid terminus advance, strandlines, and rapid changes in surface crevassing. Relates increase in new surges to increase in precipitation and positive glacier mass balance in region.
