Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The A. lists and systematizes the marine factors affecting the ablation of glaciers ending in the sea| they are different and supplementary in relation to those forming the course and size of ablation of glaciers ending on land. Using mathematical formulae, the rate of thermal abrasion on the ice-water border has been determined (using selected constant situational assumptions). The range length of the glacier into the sea has been established to the lines: a) of reaching isostatic balance, which e.g. at a snout thickness of 100 m and an inclination of the bedrock of 1 is 5.156 m. but at an inclination of bedrock of 6 and the same thickness it decreases to 856 m., and b) of cross-section of the glacier's surface with the water surface (theoretical situation).
