Record #202881:

The formation and dynamics of glaciers / Michael Kuhn.

Title: The formation and dynamics of glaciers / Michael Kuhn.
Author(s): Kuhn, Michael.
Date: 2010.
Publisher: London: Taylor & Francis
In: Remote sensing of glaciers : techniques for topographic, spatial and thematic mapping of glaciers. (2010.),
Abstract: Outlines glacier flow and mass balance, covering: conditions for glacier formation; climate of today's glacier environment; accumulation and formation of glacier ice; energy balance and ablation; mass balance definitions and key parameters; ice flow; mass balance determination (geodetic, direct glaciological, dynamic (balance) velocity, and hydrological methods); and debris cover and moraines. Illustrates with examples from Austrian Alps (mainly Hintereisferner) and Engabreen, Norway.
