Evan W. Burgess, Christopher F. Larsen and Richard R. Forster Summer melt regulates winter glacier flow speeds throughout Alaska Geophysical Research Letters 40

Version of Record online: 10 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/2013GL058228

Key Points

  • Winter flow speeds of glaciers slow 11% for each additional meter of summer melt
  • The response occurs because melt modulates subglacial water storage in winter
  • The dynamic is ubiquitous in Alaska and likely occurs globally in temperate ice
