Supplement to: Behrens, Horst; Oerter, Hans; Reinwarth, Oskar (1982): Results of tracer experiments with fluorescent dyes on Vernagtferner (Oetztal Alps, Austria) from 1974 to 1982. Zeitschrift für Gletscherkunde und Glazialgeologie, 18(1), 65-83, hdl:10013/epic.38457.d001
From 1974 to 1982 repeated tracer tests using fluorescent dyes were carried out in the highly glaciated drainage basin of Vernagtbach. These tests enabled the quantitative determination of the runoff in the forefield of the Vernagtferner, the calculation of travel times of the stream water and estimations of the relative contributions to the entire runoff originating from individual streams. In addition, tracer tests were carried out in the firn area of the glacier resulting in data concerning the storage and travel time of meltwater inside the glacier.
