Record #97077:

Mass balance and volume of South Cascade Glacier, Washington 1958-1985 / Robert M. Krimmel.

Title: Mass balance and volume of South Cascade Glacier, Washington 1958-1985 / Robert M. Krimmel.
Author(s): Krimmel, Robert M.
Date: 1989.
Publisher: Dordrecht: Kluwer Academic Publishers
In: Glacier fluctuations and climatic change : proceedings of the Symposium on Glacier Fluctuations and Climatic Change, held in Amsterdam, 1-5 June 1987. (1989.),
Abstract: Calculated by means of snow accumulation and ice ablation measurements. Summation of net-balance values is -10.0 m water equivalent. Topographic maps were made from vertical air photography in late summers of 1958, 1961, 1964, 1977, 1980 and 1985. In addition, topography in late summer of 1970 is known from theodolite survey. Mass balance and photogrammetry are independent measurements of cumulative volume change. Volume change for this period, measured from maps and adjusted for density of ice, is 12.7 m, multiplied by area of glacier. Discrepancy can be reconciled by using density of firn in accumulation zone, rather than density of ice, to convey volume change to water equivalent. Differences between methods in 27-year period are probably due to map errors.
