Record #96782:

Glacier-front variations of outlet glaciers from Jostedalsbreen and climate in the Jostedalsbre region of western Norway in the period 1901-80 / Atle Nesje.

Title: Glacier-front variations of outlet glaciers from Jostedalsbreen and climate in the Jostedalsbre region of western Norway in the period 1901-80 / Atle Nesje.
Author(s): Nesje, Atle.
Date: 1989.
In: Norsk Geografisk Tidsskrift. (1989.), Vol. 43(1) (1989)
Abstract: Three outlet valley glaciers compared. From 1901 to 1930, fronts remained in approximately same position. Warm summers in 1930s and 1940s, and low winter precipitation in 1930s caused extensive retreat of glaciers from mid-1930s. Fåbergstsølsbreen and Stegaholbreen reached maximum retreat 20 years later than Brigsdalsbreen. Since 1950s, front of latter has experienced net advance as response to general increase in winter precipitation, except around 1960, and average 0.7°C decrease in summer temperature. Response time of this glacier is 2 to 3 years, while average response time of other two is about 24.
