Supraglacial ponds on Tasman Glacier, New Zealand, initiated the development of the large Tasman Lake during the 1980s and still play an important role for ice loss and further terminus disintegration. Limnological and glaciological measurements between 2001 and 2003 reveal distinct differences between ponds. The hydraulic connection of a pond to the englacial water level exerts a key control on whether the pond contributes to longer-term terminus disintegration. In the earlier stages of pond… CONTINUE READING
