Abstract

Measurements and observations comprised all energy balance components and meteorological conditions in the course of the snowmelt period, may and june 1995, as well as intra- and subnival meltwater flows and the formation of a saturation zone within the snow cover during the initial period of snowmelt-runoff. In addition, release and movement of a high magnitude-low frequency slush torrent was documented on video and photographs. The results verify that the initiation of slush streams is confined to meltwater accumulation areas in drainage basins. Neither permafrost nor extreme meteorological conditions are prerequisite to slush torrents
