Leif Karlstrom, Parmesh Gajjar and Michael Manga Meander formation in supraglacial streams Journal of Geophysical Research: Earth Surface 118

Version of Record online: 17 SEP 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/jgrf.20135

Key Points

  • Channel curvature and turbulent dissipation of heat drive meander formation
  • Linear stability analysis predicts meander scaling consistent with field data
  • Competition of lateral channel erosion with glacier lowering sets channel width
