Record #166505:

Mountain glaciers in global climate-related observation networks / Wilfried Haeberli, Max Maisch, Frank Paul.

Title: Mountain glaciers in global climate-related observation networks / Wilfried Haeberli, Max Maisch, Frank Paul.
Author(s): Haeberli, Wilfried.
Maisch, Max.
Paul, Frank.
Date: 2002.
In: World Meteorological Organization Bulletin. (2002.), Vol. 51(1) (2002)
Abstract: Describes strategy for recently created Global Terrestrial Network for Glaciers, operated by World Glacier Monitoring Service. Identifies goals of long-term glacier monitoring as process understanding, model validation, change detection and impact assessment. Describes application to glacier monitoring of 5-tiered Global Hierarchical Observing Strategy, developed to be used for all terrestrial variables. Presents prominent results from observation and modelling, stating that "little doubt exists today about the strong ongoing ice loss" and concluding that "...many mountain ranges could become deglaciated within coming decades".
Notes:

World Meteorological Organization Bulletin. Vol. 51(1) :18-25 (2002).
