Description:
Abstract:
This data set provides glacier surface ablation rates for a network of approximately 250 sites on Taylor Glacier, for year 2003. Here sublimation is the dominant ablation mechanism, though a few sites have accumulation. Data are available in space-delimited ASCII format and are available via FTP.
