Jöklabreytingar 1930-1970, 1970-1995, 1995-2009 og 2009-2010 / Oddur Sigurdsson.

Title: Jöklabreytingar 1930-1970, 1970-1995, 1995-2009 og 2009-2010 / Oddur Sigurdsson.
Translated title: Glacier variations 1930-1970, 1970-1995, 1995-2009 and 2009-2010.
Author(s): Sigurdsson, Oddur.
Date: 2011.
Language: Icelandic.
In: Jökull. (2011.), Vol. 61 (2011)
Abstract: Reports precipitation during winter 2009-2010 far below average in south but above average in north. Summer 2010 was one of warmest on record. These climatic factors, along with slight tephra fall from Eyjafjallajökull volcano, caused huge melting of all glaciers, excepting Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull ice caps, where surface was protected from air temperature and radiation by thick tephra blanket. Hofsjökull suffered greatest loss since start of mass-balance measurements in 1988. Fifty-five glacier variation sites were checked; forty-five glacier termini retreated and one advanced. Includes glacier area, winter, summer and net mass balances, and ELA for three parts of Hofsjökull (Sátujökull, Thjórsárjökull and Blágnípujökull) over period 1987-2010. Net mass balances for 2009-10 were negative by 2.40-3.49 metre-equivalent.
