Abstract

The AA. present detailed data on jökulhlaup discharge and water quality from an intensive monitoring and sampling programme at 2 sites in summer 1997 when 2 jökulhlaups (glacier outburst floods) occurred. Evidence is discussed that supports the origin of both jökulhlaups being subglacial reservoirs, produced over several months by subglacial geothermal activity. The research illustrates the value of integrating high-resolution, multi-point field monitoring of meteorological, hydrological, hydrochemical, geomorphological and seismological data for understanding the dynamics, significance and downstream translation of jökulhlaups
