Research and development in mountain glaciers: an overview of institutions and organizations / Denis Knubel, Greg Greenwood, Ellen Wiegandt.

Title: Research and development in mountain glaciers: an overview of institutions and organizations / Denis Knubel, Greg Greenwood, Ellen Wiegandt.
Author(s): Knubel, Denis.
Greenwood, Greg.
Wiegandt, Ellen.
Date: 2008.
Publisher: California: University of California Press
In: Darkening peaks : glacier retreat, science and society. (2008.),
Abstract: Presents inventory and overview of key groups and organizations focusing on glaciers, in process reflecting historical trajectory of scientific concerns, highlighting state of knowledge and pointing to gaps in regional coverage and scientific understanding. Describes building of inventory database centring on World Wide Web and notes possibility that failure to search in Japanese or Chinese, for example, may mean significant organizations were missed. Divides entities identified into: archives and monitoring; research and academic institutions; and institutions for which glaciers have special significance, and discusses notable features of each section.
