Abstract

Recent models of chemical weathering in alpine glacial meltwaters suggest that sulphide oxidation is a major source of solute in the distributed component of the subglacial hydrological system. The O[2] content of glacial meltwaters depends on the initial content of snow and icemelt, which may be controlled by the rate of melting, and the kinetic balance between O[2] losses (e.g. sulphide oxidation, microbial respiration) and gains (e.g. diffusion of O[2] into solution)
