The status of research on glaciers and global glacier recession : a review

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)

BARRY R.G. ;

Abstract

This review outlines the measurements that are available, new techniques that incorporate remotely sensed data, and major findings around the world. The focus is on changes in glacier area, rather than estimates of mass balance and volume changes that address the role of glacier melt in global sea-level rise. The glacier observations needed for global climate monitoring are also outlined
