Over glaciers in the outer tropics, during the dry winter season, turbulent fluxes are an important sink of melt energy due to high sublimation rates, but measurements in stable surface layers in remote and complex terrains remain challenging. Eddy-covariance (EC) and bulk-aerodynamic (BA) methods were used to estimate surface turbulent heat fluxes of sensible (H ) and latent heat (LE) in the ablation zone of the tropical Zongo Glacier, Bolivia (16 S, 5080 ma.s.l.), from 22 July to 1 September… CONTINUE READING
