A Comparison of Glacier Melt on Debris-covered Glaciers in the Nor...

By: C. Mayer; V. Popovnin; N. Lomidze; W. Hagg; A. Lambrecht; D. Svanadze; A. Rezepkin

Description: Inst. of Meteorology and Geophysics, Univ. of Innsbruck, Innrain 52, 6020 Innsbruck, Austria. The glacier coverage in the Caucasus Mountains underwent considerable changes during the last decades. Besides a reduction in glacier area which in some areas is comparable to area changes in the European Alps, also the concentration of supra-glacial debris increased on many glaciers. Only a few glaciers in the Caucasus are monitored on a regular basis, while fo...

Description: Nichols College Dudley, MA 01571, USA. The Taku Glacier, Alaska has advanced 7.5 km since the late nineteenth century, while all other primary outlet glaciers of the Juneau Icefield are in retreat. The Juneau Icefield Research Program has completed field work on the Taku Glacier annually since 1946. The collected observations of surface mass balance, glacier velocity and glacier thickness at Profile IV 29 km above the terminus and 4 km above the equilib...

By: C. Vincent; P. Wagnon; P. Ginot; D. Six; L. Piard; A. Gilbert

Description: CNRS, LGGE (UMR5183), 38041 Grenoble, France. Analysis of the thermal regime of glaciers is crucial for glacier hazard assessment, especially in the context of a changing climate. In particular, the transient thermal regime of cold accumulation zones needs to be modeled. A modeling approach has therefore been developed to determine this thermal regime using only near-surface boundary conditions coming from meteorological observations. In the first step...

Description: Department of Geosciences, University of Oslo, Oslo, Norway. In permafrost environments exposed to strong winds, drifting snow can create a small-scale pattern of strongly variable snow heights which has profound implications for the thermal regime of the ground. Arrays of 26 to more than 100 temperature loggers were installed to record the distribution of ground surface temperatures within three study areas across a climatic gradient from continuous to ...

Description: Collecte Localisation Satellites, Parc Technologique du canal, 8–10 rue Hermès, 31520 Ramonville Saint-Agne, France. The assessment of long-term errors in altimeter sea level measurements is essential for studies related to the mean sea level (MSL) evolution. One of the main contributors to the long-term sea level uncertainties is the correction of the altimeter range from the wet troposphere path delay, which is provided by onboard microwave radio...

Description: Hydrographic Institute of the Republic of Croatia, Split, Croatia. In this paper we document dense water formation throughout the Adriatic shelf and coastal area in January/February 2012, resulting in record-breaking densities observed during and after the event. The unprecedented dense water generation was preconditioned by a dry and warm year which resulted in a significant reduction of coastal freshwaters, superimposed on a long-term basin-wide salin...

Description: Centre for Climate and Cryosphere, Institute of Meteorology and Geophysics, University of Innsbruck, Innsbruck, Austria. Numerical simulation of glacier dynamics in mountainous regions using low-order, shallow ice models is desirable for computational efficiency and their capability of including ice dynamics in estimates of mountain glacier wastage worldwide. However, these models present several difficulties when applied to complex topography. One such prob...

Description: Department of Geosciences, University of Oslo, P.O. Box 1047 Blindern, 0316 Oslo, Norway. Surface glacier debris samples and field spectra were collected from the ablation zones of Nepal Himalaya Ngozumpa and Khumbu glaciers in November and December 2009. Geochemical and mineral compositions of supraglacial debris were determined by X-ray diffraction and X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy. This composition data was used as ground truth in evaluating field s...
