Die Gletscher der Schweizer Alpen / Max Maisch, Andreas Wipf, Bernhard Denneler, Julius Battaglia, Christof Benz.

Title: Die Gletscher der Schweizer Alpen / Max Maisch, Andreas Wipf, Bernhard Denneler, Julius Battaglia, Christof Benz.
Translated title: The glaciers of the Swiss Alps.

Language: German and French.
Abstract: French and English summaries. Gives data from Swiss National Research Program SNP 31 in which every glacier and ice patch in Swiss Alps was reconstructed, inventoried and analyzed, covering 1850, 1973 and including possible retreat scenarios for 21st century. There has been considerable reduction in glacier area and length since 1850. Vertical distribution of glaciers and their ELA echoes variable temperatures and position. Differing ELA-rise scenarios are calculated in conjunction with climate scenarios, suggesting that ice decay may not proceed in regular way, but have greatest effect on small glaciers. Considerable further reduction in glaciers and in glaciated areas is predicted, with extension of permafrost. Study emphasizes importance of alpine glaciers as climatic indicators and subject for modelling future developments.
