Record #188344:

Changing views of changing glaciers / Wilfried Haeberli.

Title: Changing views of changing glaciers / Wilfried Haeberli.
Author(s): Haeberli, Wilfried.
Date: 2008.
Publisher: California: University of California Press
In: Darkening peaks : glacier retreat, science and society. (2008.),
Abstract: Charts increasing interest in glaciers during last three to four centuries in European Alps, emphasizing major directions of change. Covers: curiosity and romantic enthusiasm following Rousseau and von Haller; onset of science, from natural catastrophe (1818 Mauvoisin lake outburst flood) to Ice Age debate; beginning of systematic observations; use of high technology and period spanning two world wars (through which intense warming and glacier shrinkage of 1930s and 1940s went virtually unnoticed); establishment of monitoring programs (and their brief interruption due to theoretical crisis and loss of favour with International Commission on Snow and Ice); prospects for glaciers in Alps and for deglaciated high mountain areas.
