Abstract

The purpose of the programme is to study gradients in mass balance parameters across the northern Scandinavian mountains. Storglaciären is the most important glacier in the network and is measured with high accuracy and measurement density. Storglaciären is also used as a reference for all other glaciers in the programme. In general, Swedish glaciers are still responding to the major climatic warming around 1910-1920 by retreat, and the effect of very long response times. However, measured volume change indicates that most glaciers are close to or varying around a quasi-steady state
