Ablation Variation with time Across Variable Glacier Surface
This post was prompted by comments from Ruth Mottram about funding for ablation process studies and the work by Fausto et al (2016) that noted non-radiative forces dominated the energy fluxes for ablation on the Greenland Ice Sheet during a period of high ablation in July 2012. This reminded me of a study we conducted some 25 years ago on the variation of ablation through time across a variable glacier …
