Record #180065:

An assessment of the mass balance of Peyto Glacier (1966-1995) and its relation to recent and past-century climatic variability / Michael N. Demuth, Ray Keller.

Title: An assessment of the mass balance of Peyto Glacier (1966-1995) and its relation to recent and past-century climatic variability / Michael N. Demuth, Ray Keller.
Author(s): Demuth, Michael N.
Keller, Ray.
Date: 2006.
Publisher: Saskatoon: National Water Research Institute
In: Peyto Glacier : one century of science. (2006.),
Abstract: Describes seasonal and net annual mass balance time series for 1966-1995. Outlines data collection, reduction and error analysis. Shows winter balance was major influence on net balance, with quasi-step change after 1976 of approximately -515 mm w.e. and gradual return to long-term average after 1988. Summer balance is less important overall, but includes some extreme mass losses. Associates observations with shifts in synoptic climate. Describes past-century change of energy associated with glacier melting, including spectacular early 20th century mass loss, mid-century abatement and accelerating mass loss since mid-1970s, broadly consistent with estimated anthropogenic radiative forcing. Overall Peyto Glacier has lost 70% of its volume since 1896.
