Surface and subsurface hydrology of debris-covered Khumbu Glacier, Nepal, revealed by dye tracing
Review articleOpen access
Abstract:

Highlights•Dye tracing used to investigate hydrology of debris-covered Khumbu Glacier, Nepal.•A subsurface drainage system exists, and is likely highly sinuous and channelised.•The subsurface drainage system does not link to the chain of supraglacial ponds.•Flow through the pond chain is slow and comprises a small part of total discharge.•Rapid pathway changes are observed, resulting from variable surface lowering.
