The concept of glacier storage : a review

  title={The concept of glacier storage : a review},
  author={Peter Jansson and Regine Hock and Thomas Schneider},
Glacier storage is a widely used term, applied to different processes and time-scales by different disciplines in hydrology and glaciology. We identify that storage occurs as ice, snow, and water associated with three time-scales. Long-term storage concerns storage of ice and firn as glaciers on time-scales of years to centuries and longer. This storage affects global sea level and long-term water balance of glacierized catchments and is especially important for water resources in arid and… CONTINUE READING
