Glacier Ice-Volume Modeling and Glacier Volumes On Redoubt Volcano, Alaska by Dennis C. Trabant and Daniel B. Hawkins ABSTRACT Assessment of ice volumes and hydrologic hazards on Redoubt Volcano began four months before the eruptions removed cubic kilometer of perennial snow and ice from Drift by: 5.

Assessment of ice volumes and hydrologic hazards on Redoubt Volcano began four months before the eruptions removed cubic kilometer of perennial snow and ice from Drift glacier. A volume model was developed for evaluating glacier volumes on Redoubt Volcano. The volume model is based on third-order polynomial simulations of valley cross sections.

These measures are the most common way in which the response of glaciers to climate change is monitored, as conditions favorable for positive glacier mass balance (e.g., increasing snowfall, lower tempera-tures) typically result in glacier advance, while negative.

Reading/Discussion. The contribution of land glacier melting to global sea level rise has been explored in a recent study of Alaskan glaciers. In this study, airborne laser altimetry was used to determine the mass and thickness of over fifty glaciers. Glacier ice-volume modeling and glacier volumes on Redoubt Volcano, Alaska.

By definition, glacial surges are accelerated movements, for durations up to about 2 years, during which glaciers may move at speeds up to times their long-term average speed. Glacier ice-volume modeling and glacier volumes on Redoubt Volcano, Alaska.

A variety of approaches is being adopted in large scale ice-flow modeling.The later mentions the accelerating Pine Glacier, also the subject of the latest missives.
