Late Pleistocene detrital sediment yield of the Jura Glacier, France

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



In this study, glacial mechanical erosion is evaluated using a somewhat more reliable technique and the level of uncertainty is estimated. This paper quantifies the glacial material trapped in a proglacial lake where all the detrital material entering it from the Jura glacier accumulated. Sediment yield is computed from 3 factors : the size of the sediment source area, the length of time the system operated, and the volume of sediment trapped. The results show that mechanical erosion by the Jura glacier is more intensive than other processes of erosion
