Peak discharge estimates of glacial-lake outburst floods and normal climatic floods in the Mount Everest region, Nepal

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Glacial-lake outburst floods (GLOFs) in the Mount Everest region of Nepal on 3 september 1977 and 4 August 1985 dramatically modified channels and valleys in the region by eroding, transporting, and depositing large quantities of sediment for tens of kilometers along their flood routes. A one-dimensional step-backwater flow model was utilized, in conjunction with paleostage indicators, to estimate the peak dicharges of the GLOFs and SHFFs (seasonal high flow floods) and to reconstruct the hydrology and hydrauic conditions of the GLOFs at 10 reaches and SHFFs at 18 reaches
