"GLOFs"

Seismic observations, numerical modeling, and geomorphic analysis of a glacier lake outburst flood in the Himalayas

Glacial lake outburst floods (GLOFs) are a substantial hazard for downstream communities in vulnerable regions, yet unpredictable triggers and remote source locations make GLOF dynamics difficult to measure and quantify. Here, we revisit a …
