Record #199321:

Recent mass balance results and morphological evolution of Careser Glacier (Central Alps) / Luca Carturan, Roberto Seppi.

Title: Recent mass balance results and morphological evolution of Careser Glacier (Central Alps) / Luca Carturan, Roberto Seppi.
Author(s): Carturan, Luca.
Seppi, Roberto.
Date: 2007.
In: Geografia Fisica e Dinamica Quaternaria. (2007.), Vol. 30(1) (2007)
Abstract: Reports mass balance measurements for period 2002-2005, and compares with historical data for 1966/67 onward and data from eight nearby Austrian glaciers. Describes recent rapid changes in glacier morphology and geometry and discusses connection with climatic changes. Balance for 2002-2005 was highly negative, averaging -2,088 mm, nearly twice 1981-2001 average. Balance from 1967-1980 was near equilibrium. Links balance changes to ablation season temperatures (and more weakly to accumulation season). Morphological changes include surface lowering, bedrock emersion and rapid fragmentation, with positive feedbacks contributing to deglaciation. Expects complete extinction within a few decades if current climatic conditions continue (glacier currently has no accumulation areas)
