Determining the potential of glacial discharge for hydropwer

  • Project Student PI: Kai Meyers

This project seeks to model the discharge of Dixon Glacier (near Homer, AK) to predict when peak flow might occur. Peak flow is the point at which discharge stops increasing and begins to decrease and is a critical factor in determining the potential to capture the Dixon discharge and divert it to Bradley Lake, a nearby hydropower project.
