Abstract

This paper presents the 2002 to 2005 and historical mass balance series for careser glacier. The mass balance evolution since 1967 has been compared with the meteorological data from the local weather stations. The most recent morphological changes of the ice body are also described. In the las four years the mass balance was extremely negative, with an average value of -2008 mm we and a minimum value of 3317 mm we. The current mass loss rate is nearly twice the average of the 1981 to 2001 (-1195 mm we) whereas between 1967 and 1980 the glacier was near equilibrium conditions. - (NF)
