Abstract

While studied periodically since 1870, in the last decade there has been a resurgence of interest in understanding the hydrology, biogeochemistry and ecology of cryoconite holes, and so it is timely to take stock of the current state of understanding, and to compile a roadmap for future endeavours. This paper combines past findings into a systems framework so as to identify the key integrative findings of cryoconite holes as single entities, and as part of the wider glacier system
