Solute generation and transfer from a chemically reactive alpine glacial-proglacial system


The environs of the Glacier de Tsanfleuron, Switzerland, was used as a study site to investigate the controls on the relative efficiency of solute generation and removal from glacial and proglacial environments. A simple conceptual model of the sources of water and solutes agrees with conclusions from attempts at hydrograph separation, that mixing of water reservoirs of fixed solute composition cannot be used for quantitative descriptions of the system. Estimated annual solute yields are high, but cannot be readily expressed in purely areal terms because of likely significant losses to the underlying karstic system
