.... Glacial waters and sediments were sampled aseptically from Bodalsbreen, an outlet glacier of the Jostedalsbreen ice cap (Norway), and from Haut Glacier d’Arolla (Switzerland). Bodalsbreen is underlain by 1.6–1.8 Ga granitic gneisses ( Oftedahl, 1980 ), and Haut Glacier d’Arolla (hereafter Arolla...

... the catchment structure of the glacier drainage system by working out which injection sites resulted in dye emergence in which stream(s). It was the perfect site for using dye injections to investigate the behaviour of an entire glacier drainage system ( Richards et al. , 1996 ). In our first season at Arolla...

... and, in 1988, we decided to try to get funding for a glacier hydrological project in the Swiss Alps. We teamed up with Mike Clark and Angela Gurnell at Southampton University, who had been working in the Arolla Region and had just edited a seminal book “Glacio-fluvial Sediment Transfer: an Alpine Perspective...

... of meltwater production. This was essentially the opposite of what we had found at Arolla, where short term variations in melt rates were clearly reflected in the discharge hydrograph. Larger water storage volumes and/or longer water storage times at the bed of John Evans Glacier both suggested...

... ( Gibbs and Kump, 1994 ). Most chemical weathering in temperate and tropical locales occurs in soil ( Drever, 1997 ), so glaciers did not seem to have much going for them as potential agents of chemical weathering. The only positive factor seemed to be that glaciers crushed bedrock into fine silt-and clay...

...Kurt Nicolussi; Christian Schlüchter Abstract Evidence for an 8.2 ka event–related advance for an Alpine glacier was missing for a long time. In the light of dendrochronological analyses for tree remains found in front of the Mont Miné Glacier, Swiss Alps, we present evidence for such an advance...
