Record #118520:

The dramatic retreat of Mount Kenya's glaciers between 1963 and 1987: greenhouse forcing / Stefan Hastenrath, Phillip D. Kruss.

Title: The dramatic retreat of Mount Kenya's glaciers between 1963 and 1987: greenhouse forcing / Stefan Hastenrath, Phillip D. Kruss.
Author(s): Hastenrath, Stefan.
Kruss, Phillip D.
Date: 1992.
In: Annals of Glaciology. (1992.), Vol. 16 (1992)
Abstract: Sensitivity analyses were conducted and interpreted in context of observational evidence. Retreat appears to have been driven by three climatic forcings: directly through net longwave radiation, indirectly through warming and therefore enhanced sensible heat transfer, and indirectly through warming (not necessarily in region) leading to increased (advected) atmospheric moisture and hence to reduced latent heat transfer.
Notes:
