Breer og klima / Atle Nesje.

Title: Breer og klima / Atle Nesje.
Translated title: Glaciers and climate.
Author(s): Nesje, Atle.
Date: 1999.
Language: Norwegian.
In: Ottar. (1999.), Vol. 5 (1999)
Abstract: Describes how glaciers show climate variations over time. Area statistics in Norway and Svalbard are given. In coastal areas it takes 5-6 years for snow to become ice; in Antarctic it takes hundreds. Nett, winter and summer balances of some glaciers in Scandinavia are shown. Geothermal heat has important effect on lowest layers, considerable in volcanic Iceland. Several coastal glaciers in Norway have had positive mass balance in 1990s, so are advancing. Inland, they retreated. Holocene climate includes "Little Ice Age", 1600-1920.
Notes:

Ottar. Vol. 5 :9-15 (1999).
