Amplified climate change and ecological sensitivity of polar and cold climate environments are key global environment issues. Understanding how projected climate change will alter surface environments in these regions is only possible when present day source-to-sink fluxes can be quantified. The book provides the first global synthesis and integrated analysis of environmental drivers and.

In the arctic regions the investigation of stream water origin is crucial for understanding interaction between aquatic and torrential ecosystems. The main source of water in glacial rivers in the High Arctic is the melting of ice from glaciers (Hagen and Lefauconnier, , Hodkins et al., , Rachlewicz, a, Rachlewicz, b, Sobota, ).Cited by: 4.

      Alpine glacier retreat resulting from global warming since the close of the Little Ice Age in the 19th and 20th centuries has increased the risk and incidence of some geologic and hydrologic hazards in mountainous alpine regions of North America. Abundant loose debris in recently deglaciated areas at the toe of alpine glaciers provides a ready source of sediment during rainstorms or outburst Cited by:   Glacier Science and Environmental Change is an authoritative and comprehensive reference work on contemporary issues in glaciology. It explores the interface between glacier science and environmental change, in the past, present, and future.

Contemporary sediment fluxes and relief changes in high Arctic glacierized valley systems. Bødalen, located at 61°48′N, 07°05′E, is a high-relief and U-shaped valley system in the innermost part of the Nordfjord area in western Norway (Fig.

1A/B).The Bødalen catchment is draining a total area of approximately 60 km 2 and is ranging in elevation from 52 m to m a.s.l.

Understanding how projected climate change will alter surface environments in these regions is only possible when present-day source-to-sink fluxes can be quantified. The detected high relative importance of pluvially induced activation of sediment sources in ice-free drainage basin surface areas with sedimentary covers and of pluvially determined fluvial suspended sediment transport events needs also to be considered in the context of the broadly existing opinion that present glaciers are the most important sediment source in many contemporarily partly glacierized drainage basin systems and that fluvial suspended sediment transport Cited by: Rachlewicz G., Contemporary sediment fluxes and relief changes in high Arctic glacierized valley systems (Billefjorden, Central Spitsbergen).

Sediments in Lower Murray Lake, northern Ellesmere Island, Nunavut Canada (81°21′ N, 69°32′ W) contain annual laminations (varves) that provide a record of sediment accumulation through the past + years. Annual mass accumulation was estimated based on measurements of varve thickness and sediment bulk density.

Fiords are major sediment traps in the terrestrial to deep-sea sediment pathway, and the presence of these basins, landward of the continental shelf, suggests that adjacent shelves and deep-sea basins are presently largely deprived of terrestrial sediment.

Based on an estimate of the total volume of later. The fundamental concept underpinning source-to-sink sediment flux and sediment budget studies is the basic sediment mass balance equation: I = O +-ΔS.

Although the forefield is regarded as the most dynamic component of the alpine sediment flux system, largely due to the efficacy of fluvial action, the great diversity of forms and associated genetic complexity, together with the operation of time-variant processes, will likely add great variability to long-term patterns of basin sediment yield Author: Philip R.
