Record #27202:

Measurements of ablation and heat balance on Alpine glaciers, with some remarks on the cause of glacier recession in the Alps / Herfried C. Hoinkes.

Title: Measurements of ablation and heat balance on Alpine glaciers, with some remarks on the cause of glacier recession in the Alps / Herfried C. Hoinkes.
Author(s): Hoinkes, Herfried C.
Date: 1955.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1955.), Vol. 2(17) (1955)
Abstract: Results are summarized: absorption of solar and sky radiation is most important source of energy for ablation. From this, it can be inferred that glacier decrease in past century in Alps is predominantly due to altered character of summer weather conditions, rather than to increase in summer temperature. These conditions are high and increasing sunshine duration and reduced albedo as result of decrease in frequency of cold air incursions with snowfall on glaciers.
