Water Flow through Temperate Glaciers

  title={Water Flow through Temperate Glaciers},
  author={Andrew G. Fountain},
Understanding water movement through a glacier is fundamental to several critical issues in glaciology, including glacier dynamics, glacier-induced floods, and the prediction of runoff from glacierized drainage basins. To this end we have synthesized a conceptual model of water movement through a temperate glacier from the surface to the outlet stream. Processes that regulate the rate and distribution of water input at the glacier surface and that regulate water movement from the surface to the… CONTINUE READING
