Subglacial water storage in an Alpine glacier

Abstract:

Glaciated catchments increasingly accommodate rising populations. As glaciers are capable of modifying peak flows and releasing floodwaters, understanding and developing models of subglacial water storage and release has significance to the safety of resident populations and land use decision-making.

Glaciological and hydrometeorological processes play a critical role in determining water storage within the subglacial drainage system of Alpine glaciers. However, our understanding of...
