Entry ID: K046_1988_1991_NZ_1

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: A three year hydrological, glaciological and sediment transport monitoring programme was conducted in the Miers Valley. The energy and mass balances of the glacier-river-lake system was investigated and data was collected to study and quantify the seasonal variability of glacier behaviour and surface water hydrology, develop a water balance for the Miers Valley hydrologic system, determine the ...
