The net mass balance of Storglaciären, Kebnekaise, Sweden, related to the height of the equilibrium line and to the height of the 500 mb surface

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Studies of the net mass balance and height of equilibrium line on Storglaciären in Swedish Lapland and on Hintereisferner in the eastner Alps have shown that during certain periods the glaciers vary in phase whereas during other periods the opposite is true. Before glaciers in different regions are compared one has to know how they are situated in relation to the major cyclonic tracks. The summer balance of Storglaciären is strongly correlated with the height of the 500 mb surface. A high 500 mb surface means high summer temperatures and thus great melting.
