Estimate of ablation rate of glacier ice under a supraglacial debris layer

Special issue : Methods of mass balance measurements and modeling

Description :
The ablation rate under a debris layer is very difficult to measure directly at debris-covered glaciers, because the surface is highly heterogeneous, and the ablation rate varies tremendously from place to place. This paper describes previous works on the ablation process, and a test result of a proposed method to estimate the ablation rate under a debris layer is presented for the Lirung Glacier in Langtang Valley, Nepal Himalaya.
