Record #112860:

Non-climatic control of glacier-terminus fluctuations in the Wrangell and Chugach mountains, Alaska, U.S.A. / Matthew Sturm, Dorothy K. Hall, Carl S. Benson, William Osgood Field.

Title: Non-climatic control of glacier-terminus fluctuations in the Wrangell and Chugach mountains, Alaska, U.S.A. / Matthew Sturm, Dorothy K. Hall, Carl S. Benson, William Osgood Field.
Author(s): Sturm, Matthew.
Hall, Dorothy K.
Benson, Carl S.
Field, William Osgood.
Date: 1991.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1991.), Vol. 37(127) (1991)
Abstract: Studies termini changes resulting from volcanic heating and from tidewater glacial cycle. In both cases, records date back many years (as much as 60 years, for tidewater glaciers, and 30 for volcanic). Effects are larger than than those produced by climate, and this should be considered when interpreting glacier behaviour as climatic indicator.
