Consistent water and glacier mass balance measurements in Central Asia (CoWaG) – Eric Pohl

Numerical models for glacier hydrology rely on sound input data for calibration and validation. In particular when upscaling these models for regional-scale assessments of water availability in glacierised catchments, this is of great importance and includes data on various hydrological components, such as rain, snow, ice and permafrost. Understanding which […]

Sediment, Glaciers and Rivers – Ian Delaney

On-going glacier retreat will change the ways glaciers erode bedrock and subglacial water carries sediment below the glacier. Changes to sediment discharge from glaciers in mountainous or inhabited regions such as Switzerland can impact the delivery of sediment to ecosystems, lead to the infill of hydropower reservoirs, and potentially cause […]
