INSTAAR Occasional Paper No. 55 Glacier Mass Balance and Regime: Data of Measurements and Analysis
Entry ID: NSIDC-0109

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set consists of glacier regime parameters observed between
1945 and 1998. Data include annual mass balances, ablation,
accumulation, and equilibrium-line altitude of mountain and subpolar
glaciers outside the two major ice sheets. All available sources of
information, such as publications, archived data, and personal
communications have been collected, and include time series of about
280 glaciers. Data have been digitized and quality checked.
