Record #111485:

State of balance of the cryosphere / Cornelis J. Van der Veen.

Title: State of balance of the cryosphere / Cornelis J. Van der Veen.
Author(s): Van der Veen, Cornelis J.
Date: 1991.
In: Reviews of Geophysics. (1991.), Vol. 29(3) (1991)
Abstract: Summarizes available observations and mass-balance estimates, pointing out poor current knowledge of state of balance of terrestrial ice sheets (principally Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets), mountain glaciers and small ice caps. Programme based on satellite observations, in cooperation with ground-based surveys repeated over long periods of time (years or decades) appears to be most likely to improve current estimates and to monitor changes in volume and extent.
