Sensitivity of mountain glacierization to climatic changes in central Asia / G.E. Glazirin, L.N. Braun, A.S. Shchetinnikov.

Title: Sensitivity of mountain glacierization to climatic changes in central Asia / G.E. Glazirin, L.N. Braun, A.S. Shchetinnikov.
Author(s): Glazirin, G. E.
Braun, L. N.
Shchetinnikov, A. S.
Date: 2003.
In: Zeitschrift für Gletscherkunde und Glazialgeologie. (2003.), Vol. 38(1) (2003)
Abstract: Presents modelled sensitivities of glacierization in 18 river basins of central Asia to climate change. Summarises model used, based on calculating shift of equilibrium line altitude from assumed temperature or precipitation and observed quantities such as specific mass balance gradient, annual specific ablation and topography of river basin. Assumes vertical summer temperature gradient of -6.5°C/km and finds 1°C increase in summer air temperature leads to ELA shift of 0.12-0.14 km. Effect of this is small (relatively) for larger basins, but 0.5°C increase results in up to 30% loss of glacierized area in smaller basins. Precipitation decrease of 10% leads to similar results.
