Record #103834:

Air temperature and precipitation at Wolverine Glacier, Alaska: glacier growth in a warmer, wetter climate / L.R. Mayo, R.S. March.

Title: Air temperature and precipitation at Wolverine Glacier, Alaska: glacier growth in a warmer, wetter climate / L.R. Mayo, R.S. March.
Author(s): Mayo, L. R.
March, R. S.
Date: 1990.
In: Annals of Glaciology. (1990.), Vol. 14 (1990)
Abstract: Measurements indicate unsteady increases since early 1970s, due almost entirely to changes in winter. Consequence was change to generally positive mass balance after 1976, contrary to oversimplified notion that, during warming, glaciers will melt, causing sea-level rise. Snow precipitation and glacier accumulation increased, while warming affected only those temperatures below -5°C, and melting was not altered.
