Record #184650:

Selected methods in mass balance estimation of Waldemar Glacier, Spitsbergen / Ireneusz Sobota.

Title: Selected methods in mass balance estimation of Waldemar Glacier, Spitsbergen / Ireneusz Sobota.
Author(s): Sobota, Ireneusz.
Date: 2007.
In: Polish Polar Research. (2007.), Vol. 28(4) (2007)
Abstract: Describes methods used to estimate mass balance on Waldemarbreen as part of international glacier monitoring program GTN-G, including traditional stake readings and snow surveys and indirect climatological and geodetic methods. Compares methods, using climatological records, direct glaciological data and topographic maps from 1978 and 2000. Reports average mass balance computed by climatological methods (based on air temperature and degree-day models) was -0.42 m/a water equivalent for period 1970-2004 and -0.51 m/a for 1970-2004. Glaciological balance for 1996-2004 was -0.53 m/a. Geodetic estimate for 1978-2000 was -0.52 m/a. Discusses error sources and finds agreement between methods encouraging. Discusses their applicability to other glaciers.
