Record #176145:

The Brenva Glacier (Mt. Blanc, Alps) has lost its great valley tongue / Augusta Vittoria Cerutti.

Title: The Brenva Glacier (Mt. Blanc, Alps) has lost its great valley tongue / Augusta Vittoria Cerutti.
Author(s): Cerutti, Augusta Vittoria.
Date: 2005.
In: Geografia Fisica e Dinamica Quaternaria. (2005.), Vol. 28(2) (2005)
Abstract: Reports disappearance in September 2004 of flow of seracs that once joined high basin of Brenva glacier to its valley tongue. Remnants of tongue, which was longer than 3 km, now form large ice mass on bottom of Val Veny, whilst glacier's active front is 1000 m higher at 2350 m a.s.l. Once a valley glacier, Brenva is now a cirque glacier. Reviews glacier's evolution since 1960 and recent events which typify strong retreat being undergone by Alpine glaciers.
