Question

4. (20 points) Glacier melting forms an important water resource for some parts of the world. Estimate the maximum annual yield of water in acre-feet from a 1 mi?surface area glacier in Nepal (latitude of 30° N) across a year, assuming clear skies (i.e., using R values from Table4.4 in the notes) and that the glacier surface has properties typical of old snow.
