Adina E. Racoviteanu, Richard Armstrong and Mark W. Williams Evaluation of an ice ablation model to estimate the contribution of melting glacier ice to annual discharge in the Nepal Himalaya Water Resources Research 49

Version of Record online: 4 SEP 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/wrcr.20370

Key Points

  • A simple ice-ablation model provides a robust glacial ice melt runoff estimate
  • Groundwater dominates river flow within tens of km of the glacier outlets.
  • Debris covered glaciers contribute only a small amount to streamflow.
