Abstract

Patterns of glacial fluctuation are related to the general trends in climate. Between 1862 and 1888 there was locally important glacier recession. This was followed by a cooler period marked by glacier advance. A glacier stillstand is recorded during the first four decades of the present century and since 1940, a period of general temperature warming, the glaciers have all receded. Ice fronts have retreated up to 5 km from positions reached in 1862 and ice levels have dropped over 100 m.
