Record #22586:

Note on the relation between the height of the firn line and the dimensions of a glacier / G.S. Callendar.

Title: Note on the relation between the height of the firn line and the dimensions of a glacier / G.S. Callendar.
Author(s): Callendar, G. S.
Date: 1950.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1950.), Vol. 1(8) (1950)
Abstract: Some glaciers maintain uniform slope and width for long distances. It is possible to estimate effect of small change in altitude of firn line on length of glacier if change occurred between periods when it was in climatic equilibrium for several years and was due to variation of temperature rather than precipitation.
