Record #202866:

Holocene mountain glacier fluctuations: a global overview / Giuseppe Orombelli.

Title: Holocene mountain glacier fluctuations: a global overview / Giuseppe Orombelli.
Author(s): Orombelli, Giuseppe.
Date: 2011.
In: Geografia Fisica e Dinamica Quaternaria. (2011.), Vol. 34(1) (2011)
Abstract: Notes how last century has seen use of Holocene glacier fluctuations as proxies of climate change spread from Alps across globe, how a multitude of high-frequency glacier fluctuations, mainly related to local-regional climatic variability, was revealed, and how in northern hemisphere at least, a coherent pattern of glacier advance/retreat on millennial scales is emerging. Notes relatively scanty knowledge in southern hemisphere, with significant differences in humid and dry areas. Discusses: mountain glaciers and climate change, recent and ongoing glacier fluctuations, geologic evidence of past glacier fluctuations, Holocene glacier fluctuations in Alps and other mountain regions and their patterns and causes, etc. Places current extent and general retreat of mountain glaciation in wider Holocene context.
