variable glacier melt contributions to stream flow between basins, ranging from 2 to 20%, with an average of around 10%, representing 4% of the mean annual estimated outflow of Nepalese rivers. Immerzeel et al () similarly find that snow and glacier melt amounts to % (snow 5 %, glacier 5 %) of the overall discharge of the Ganges RiverCited by: "This book provides an updated discussion of some aspects of snow and glacier hydrology, drawing on the results of investigations in recent years in Arctic, Antarctic, Himalayas, Alps, Rocky Mountains and other mountains of the world.

Water in glaciers Water can flow at the surface, within,and at the base of an glacier. Glacier hydrology is of interest since: • Glacier-fed rivers provide much of the water for agriculture (Canadian prairies, central Asia) and forhydro-electricalpowerproduction(Iceland, France, Switzer-land, Norway).

Objective: to learn about the production and drainage of glacial meltwater and the impact of meltwater on glacial processes.

Books shelved as hydrology: A World Without Ice by Henry N. Pollack, Engineering Hydrology by K. Subramanya, Physical Hydrology by S. Lawrence Dingman, D. Snow hydrology is a scientific study in the field of hydrology which focuses on the composition, dispersion, and movement of snow and s of snow hydrology predate the Anno Domini era, although major breakthroughs were not made until the mid eighteenth century.. Snowfall, accumulation and melt are important hydrological processes in watersheds at high altitudes or latitudes.

GLACIER BOOKS are specialist book dealers, who buy and sell New, Secondhand & Antiquarian Books on all aspects of Mountaineering, Mountain Travel and Polar Exploration.

We have an extensive stock of books on all the Mountain and Polar Regions of the world. The study of glaciers forms a part of surface-water hydrology, but because a part of runoff from snow and glaciers behaves like subsurface flow, groundwater hydrology concepts are also invoked. Flow in the stream is made up of the flow due to direct response of the basin to precipitation and the flow from snowmelt/glacier melt and baseflow.

The earth’s cryosphere, which includes snow, glaciers and ice caps, ice sheets, ice shelves, sea ice, river and lake ice, and frozen ground, contains about 75% of the earth’s fresh water.

It exists at almost all latitudes, from the tropics to the poles, and plays a vital role in controlling the global climate system.
