Record #152487:

Comparing traditional mass balance measurements with long-term volume change extracted from topographical maps: a case study of Storbreen Glacier in Jotunheimen, Norway, for the period 1940-1997 / Liss M. Andreassen.

Title: Comparing traditional mass balance measurements with long-term volume change extracted from topographical maps: a case study of Storbreen Glacier in Jotunheimen, Norway, for the period 1940-1997 / Liss M. Andreassen.
Author(s): Andreassen, Liss M.
Date: 1999.
In: Geografiska Annaler. Series A. Physical Geography. (1999.), Vol. 81A(4) (1999)
Abstract: Compares volume change calculated from maps with annual mass balance data. Volume change agreed reasonably with cumulative mass balance for 1940-51 and 1968-84, though for 1951-68 and 1984-97 mass balance measurements showed larger negative values than obtained from map comparisons. Inaccuracy of early maps may account for this. Gives suggestions for improving techniques.
