Abstract

Based on the field observations of mass balance and glacier temperature at Baishui Glacier No.1 in Mt. Yulong, its accumulation, ablation, net balance and near-surface ice temperature structure were analyzed and studied in this paper. Results showed that the accumulation period was ranged from October to the following mid-May, and the ablation period occurred from mid-May to October, suggesting that the ablation period of temperate glacier began about 15 days earlier than that of continental glaciers, while the accumulation period began about 15 days later. Compared with the data from 1982, the glacier temperature has risen in the ablation zone in recent decades
