IACS Working Group on Debris Covered Glaciers

The International Association of Cryospheric Sciences is part of the IUGG (http://www.iugg.org/) and supports Working groups on specific cryospheric topics. This Zenodo Community hosts the data products associated with the Working Group.

The overarching aim of the debris-covered glaciers working group is to advance our understanding of how debris impacts glacier response to climate at the local, regional, and global scale.  This is a necessary precursor to accurately representing debris-covered glaciers in models of regional runoff and sea-level change projections.

The specific objectives are to:

  1. compare the available methods of mapping supra-glacial debris thickness, and assess their appropriateness for different applications
  2. compare the performance of available sub-debris ablation models, and assess their appropriateness for different applications.
  3. work closely with the debris-covered glaciers community to coordinate knowledge exchange
