Record #88582:

Der Flächenverlust der Gletscher in Österreich 1850--1920--1969 / Günther Gross.

Title: Der Flächenverlust der Gletscher in Österreich 1850--1920--1969 / Günther Gross.
Translated title: Areal losses of the glaciers in the Austrian Alps 1850--1920--1969.
Author(s): Gross, Günther.
Date: 1987.
Language: German.
In: Zeitschrift für Gletscherkunde und Glazialgeologie. (1987.), Vol. 23(2) (1987)
Abstract: From calculations of glacier surface areas at these dates, conclusions can be drawn about areal losses over this period. Glaciers which have vanished completely since 1850 account for 3.7% of areal loss since then. Altitudinal distribution of areal losses since 1850 shows maximum (>30%) in zone between 2,600 and 2,800 m; zone below 2,500 m accounts for 20%. Areal loss depends more on glacier size than on aspect. Small glaciers (<1 km²) suffered greater losses before 1920, whereas larger glaciers were more affected after 1920.
