This paper examines evidence for glacier change over the past 150 years in the Durmitor massif in Montenegro. The AA. have 3 main aims : 1) examine evidence for recent glaciers and perennial snow patches in the high cirques of the Durmitor massif; 2) examine the timing of moraine and pronival rampart building in these high cirques using lichenometry; 3) reconstruct the characteristics of the former glaciers and snow patches and assess the local topoclimatic controls (windblown and avalanching snow as well as shading) contributing to their development
