      The Columbia Glacier drains west from Columbia Icefield into British Columbia. The glacier in was km long, by km long and in km long. The glacier drops rapidly from the plateau area over a major ice fall, which created a series of ogives, as seen in .   The results of laboratory experiments performed with a prototype of a measuring device intended for monitoring the thickness and drift velocity of ice in Arctic seas are presented. This device is a system of hydrostatic-pressure sensors located inside a hollow flexible tube. Owing to the positive buoyancy, the system of sensors is pressed to the bottom of drifting : D. V.

Models relying on multiple data sets – such as surface ice velocity fields, surface mass balance, or rates of ice thickness change – showed high sensitivity to input data quality.

The existence of a km long subglacial lake beneath Vostok Station, central East Antarctica (Lake Vostok) has been known for a number of years.At Vostok Station, a deep ice core which holds palaeo-environmental data spanning over years terminates m from the surface of the sub-ice lake.

The field developed rapidly, with new applications and methods arising for interferometric velocity measurements of the Arctic and Antarctic ice sheets and streams (Kwok et al.,Rignot et al., ), alpine glaciers (Mattar et al.,Cumming and Zhang,Li et al., ) including the subject of this study, the Aletsch Glacier Cited by: Simulation of total ice melt runoff by elevation zone, interaction with 0°C isotherm and zonal ice melt production in relation to the mean.

In the first section, glacier velocity increases progressively from about 7 m a-1 at the elevation of about m to a maximum, while showing small-scale spatial variations.
