Cold firn and ice of high-altitude glaciers in the Alps: measurements and distribution modelling / Stephan Suter, Martin Laternser, Wilfried Haeberli, Regula Frauenfelder, Martin Hoelzle.

Title: Cold firn and ice of high-altitude glaciers in the Alps: measurements and distribution modelling / Stephan Suter, Martin Laternser, Wilfried Haeberli, Regula Frauenfelder, Martin Hoelzle.
Author(s): Suter, Stephan.
Laternser, Martin.

Hoelzle, Martin.
Date: 2001.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (2001.), Vol. 47(156) (2001)
Abstract: Presents firn and ice temperatures observed in boreholes in Jungfraufirn, Breithorn Plateau and Upper Grenzgletscher. Presents statistical analyses of parameters (temperature, altitude, aspect) involved in mass and energy exchange and their relation to cold firn. Calculates aspect-dependent lower boundaries for occurrence of cold firn in European Alps and identifies 120 such cold firn areas. Simple model shows that release of latent heat from refreezing meltwater decisively influences firn temperatures.
