Record #183722:

Fluctuations of the "Mer de Glace" (Mont Blanc area, France) AD 1500-2050: an interdisciplinary approach using new historical data and neural network simulations / S.U. Nussbaumer, H.J. Zumbühl, D. Steiner.

Title: Fluctuations of the "Mer de Glace" (Mont Blanc area, France) AD 1500-2050: an interdisciplinary approach using new historical data and neural network simulations / S.U. Nussbaumer, H.J. Zumbühl, D. Steiner.
Author(s): Nussbaumer, S. U.
Zumbühl, H. J.
Steiner, D.
Date: 2007.
In: Zeitschrift für Gletscherkunde und Glazialgeologie. (2007.), Vol. 40 (2007)
Abstract: Presents revised and refined glacier length curve for Mer de Glace. In parts: History of the Mer de Glace 1570-2003 according to pictorial and written documents; The application of a neural network to the length record of the Mer de Glace. Reproduces, analyses and interprets drawings, paintings, prints, photographs, maps and descriptive texts. Finds greatest extent in 1644, with early 19th century advances followed by almost continuous post-1950s retreat. Uses topographical maps and aerial photographs to quantify remarkable ice loss from 1939-2001. Uses non-linear back-propagation neural network model to simulate glacier variations using multi-proxy reconstructions of seasonal temperature and precipitation back to 1500. Uses two climate scenarios to predict glacier length up to 2042, noting greater influence of temperature than precipitation and potential for use of glacier length as climate change indicator.
