Volcanogenic jökulhlaups (glacier outburst floods) from Mýrdalsjökull: impacts on proglacial environments / Andrew J. Russell, Robert Duller, Nigel P. Mountney.

Title: Volcanogenic jökulhlaups (glacier outburst floods) from Mýrdalsjökull: impacts on proglacial environments / Andrew J. Russell, Robert Duller, Nigel P. Mountney.
Author(s): Russell, Andrew J.
Duller, Robert.
Mountney, Nigel P.
Date: 2010.
Publisher: London: Elsevier
In: Mýrdalsjökull ice cap, Iceland : glacial processes, sediments and landforms on an active volcano. (2010.),
Abstract: Reviews current understanding of characteristics and impacts of jökulhlaups from Mýrdalsjökull and its outlet glaciers. Outlines volcanic and jökulhlaup history associated with Katla Volcanic System and Mýrdalsjökull before examining: jökulhlaups from Kötlujökull across Mýrdalssandur (particularly 1918 Katlahlaup and its impact, but also earlier and more recent ones); Sólheimasandur and Skòasandur (covering jökulhlaup magnitude and frequency, geomorphological and sedimentary evidence, impact of July 1999 jökulhlaup, etc.); and jökulhlaups from northwestern sector of Mýrdalsjökull draining into Markarfljót.
