Record #117271:

The glaciers of the Sierra Nevada de Mérida (Venezuela): a photographic comparison of recent deglaciation / Carlos Schubert.

Title: The glaciers of the Sierra Nevada de Mérida (Venezuela): a photographic comparison of recent deglaciation / Carlos Schubert.
Author(s): Schubert, Carlos.
Date: 1992.
In: Erdkunde. (1992.), Vol. 46(1) (1992)
Abstract: Evidence of glacier retreat is based on comparisons of ancient and present snowlines and of paintings and photographs. Total glacierized area in 1952 was about 3 km², representing reduction of 98.5% in relation to extent of Pleistocene glaciers. At least three glaciers have disappeared since 1972. Surveying programme should be initiated urgently.
