Record #199785:

Twenty-first century calving retreat of Tasman Glacier, Southern Alps, New Zealand / R.C. Dykes, and 3 others.

Title: Twenty-first century calving retreat of Tasman Glacier, Southern Alps, New Zealand / R.C. Dykes, and 3 others.
Author(s): Dykes, R. C.
Date: 2011.
In: Arctic, Antarctic, and Alpine Research. (2011.), Vol. 43(1) (2011)
Abstract: Illustrates use of satellite imagery to document terminus retreat, growth of supraglacial ponds and expansion of proglacial Tasman Lake. Tasman Glacier remained at Little Ice Age terminus until late 20th century, since when proglacial lake has formed and calving retreat initiated. Findings showed that between 2000-08 glacier terminus receded by approximately 3.7 km on western margin with concomitant expansion of ice-contact Tasman Lake. Presence of subaqueous ice ramp projecting from terminal ice cliff into lake suggests complex interactions between glacier and ice-contact lake during future calving retreat.
