Record #195248:

Glaciers / Per Holmlund.

Title: Glaciers / Per Holmlund.
Author(s): Holmlund, Per.
Date: 2005.
Publisher: Oxford: Oxford University Press
In: Physical Geography of Fennoscandia. (2005.),
Abstract: Some 1900 glaciers exist in Scandinavia (84% in Norway), covering around 2,900 km². Discusses variations in climate across region, particularly strong east-west gradient, and contrasting conditions in which glaciers exist, from maritime glaciers in west sustained by high precipitation, to glaciers east of mountain divide fed mainly by wind-blown snow. Discusses long term observation of glacier mass balance and fluctuation, particularly across three east-west transects ranging from 61-62°N to about 68°N. Describes thermal distribution in Scandinavian glaciers, and how glaciers in different areas respond differently to climate changes.
