Record #152616:

How many stakes are required to measure the mass balance of a glacier? / Andrew G. Fountain, Aldo Vecchia.

Title: How many stakes are required to measure the mass balance of a glacier? / Andrew G. Fountain, Aldo Vecchia.
Author(s): Fountain, Andrew G.
Vecchia, Aldo.
Date: 1999.
In: Geografiska Annaler. Series A. Physical Geography. (1999.), Vol. 81A(4) (1999)
Abstract: In special issue on Methods of Mass Balance Measurements and Modelling. Estimates mass balance for South Cascade Glacier and Maclure Glacier, USA, using one-dimensional regression of mass balance with altitude. Regression methods yielded mass balance values equivalent to contouring methods. Number of mass balance measurements required to determine glacier balance appears to be scale invariant for small glaciers and five to ten stakes are sufficient.
