Record #118846:

A study of ablation variations on the tongue of Hintereisferner, Austrian Alps / R.S.W. Van de Wal, Johannes Oerlemans, J.C. van der Hage.

Title: A study of ablation variations on the tongue of Hintereisferner, Austrian Alps / R.S.W. Van de Wal, Johannes Oerlemans, J.C. van der Hage.
Author(s): Van de Wal, R. S. W.
Oerlemans, Johannes.
Hage, J. C. van der.
Date: 1992.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1992.), Vol. 38(130) (1992)
Abstract: Focuses on extent to which variations in ablation can be related to differences in albedo, based on investigations carried out in summer 1989. Ablation and albedo were measured along cross- and longitudinal profiles, and energy-balance station was operated at crossing, providing necessary meteorological data. At all stakes, albedo was measured several times with simple lightweight "mini-albedometer", which is described. Absorption of solar radiation was calculated for all stake positions, taking into account local albedo, slope, aspect and shading effects. Differences in ablation can be explained almost entirely by differences in surface albedo, along and across tongue.
