Abstract

This paper presents results from southern Inylchek Glacier in the highly continental central Tian Shan, where sub-debris ablation was measured with stakes and simulated using air temperature and water vapour pressure. Parallel observations of air temperature allowed the application of a simple degree-day approach and the calculation of ablation rates. It is proved that air temperature is already a very good melt indicator
