Abstract

The mass balance of the Vernagtferner was determined separately for 3 sections with characteristic topographic differences. The equilibrium line altitude (ELA) dependence on specific net mass balance (b) is slightly different for the 3 sections, whereas the dependence of the accumulation area-total area ratio (AAR) on b is characterized by nearly identical sensitivities. Moreover, AAR correlates better with b than ELA, therefore AAR is regarded as a more representative parameter for the Vernagtferner than ELA
