Stream Flow Data Improve Ice Melt Models

Whether the question is how quickly meltwater is running into the ocean or how it may be speeding or slowing the movement of the glacier itself, surface mass balance glacial melting models are crucial tools in estimating the answers and predicting their results. For 72 hours straight, they measured stream flow, as well as detailed weather readings, building a huge, real-life database of water movement and conditions at the site. Read the Full Story
