About This Project
Rock glaciers are alpine aquifers that store water for long periods of time. Many cities depend on water supply from mountainous river basins that include rock glaciers. Impacts of climate change include reduced precipitation and shorter snow seasons. Thus, river basins originating in mountains will have less available runoff. This research analyzes the mechanism of groundwater flow and the volume of water stored within rock glaciers using electromagnetic induction (EM).
