Glacier hazards
Glacier-debris flow
Caucasus Mountains
Glacier instability
In September 2002, a catastrophic geomorphic event occurred in the Caucasus Mountains, southern Russia, in which almost the entire mass of Kolka Glacier detached from its bed, accelerated to a very high velocity (max. 65–80 m/s), and traveled a total distance of 19 km downstream as a glacier-debris flow. Based on the interpretation of satellite imagery obtained only 8.5 h before the event occurred, the analysis of seismograms from nearby seismic stations, and subsequent detailed field observations and measurements, we suggest that this remarkable event was not a response to impulse loading from a rock avalanche in the mountainside above the glacier, or to glacier surging, but due entirely to the static and delayed catastrophic response of the Kolka glacier to ice and debris loading over a period of months prior to the September 20 detachment. We reconstruct the glacier-debris flow using field observations in conjunction with the interpretation of seismographs from nearby seismic stations and successfully simulate the behaviour (runout, velocity, and deposition) of the post-detachment glacier-debris flow using a three-dimensional analytical model. Our demonstration of a standing-start hypothesis in the 2002 Kolka Glacier detachment has substantial implications for glacier hazard assessment and risk management strategies in valleys downstream from unstable debris-covered glaciers in the mountain regions of the world.

I rarely drop remarks, but i did a few searching and
wound up here Catastrophic detachment and high-velocity long-runout flow of Kolka Glacier.
Сёрджи Колки на Кавказе. And I actually
do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright.
Could it be just me or does it appear like a few
of these responses look as if they are left by brain dead individuals?
:-P And, if you are writing on additional online social sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post.
Would you make a list of all of your community sites like your
Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?. http://humizer.com/buy-instagram-followers/: http://humizer.com/buy-instagram-followers/

I'm really impressed along with your writing talents as neatly
as with the structure in your weblog. Is that this a
paid theme or did you modify it your self? Anyway stay up the nice quality
writing, it is uncommon to look a nice weblog like this one today..

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but
I find this topic to be really something that I think I would never
understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me.

I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote
the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of
that, this is magnificent blog. A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.
