Dubnick, Ashley; Wadham, Jemma; Tranter, Martyn; Sharp, Martin; Orwin, John; Barker, Joel; Bagshaw, Elizabeth; Fitzsimons, Sean;

Cold-based polar glacier watersheds contain well-defined supraglacial, ice-marginal, and proglacial elements that differ in their degree of hydrologic connectivity, sources of water (e.g., snow, ice, and/or sediment pore water), meltwater residence times, allochthonous ... View more
