Record #200646:

Haut Glacier d'Arolla, Switzerland: hydrological controls on basal sediment evacuation and glacial erosion / Darrel A. Swift.

Title: Haut Glacier d'Arolla, Switzerland: hydrological controls on basal sediment evacuation and glacial erosion / Darrel A. Swift.
Author(s): Swift, Darrel A.
Date: 2006.
Publisher: Oxford: Blackwell
In: Glacier science and environmental change. (2006.),
Abstract: Describes case study monitoring suspended sediment transport in proglacial stream draining western subglacial catchment of Haut Glacier d'Arolla during 1998. Demonstrates highly efficient sediment evacuation under channelised subglacial drainage conditions, which may increase ice-bed interaction and elevate erosional capacity.
