Abstract

The mass balance of Storsteinsfjellbreen was observed during two 5-year periods (1964-68) and (1991-95). Comparisons made during the first of these periods indicate that 2 other small Norwegian glaciers in the area showed positive and negative net balances similar to Storsteinfjellbreen. Annual net balance was found to be similar to the Swedish Storglaciären except for 1 year (1968). Consequently, it seems clear that, all the observed glaciers in the area are showing the same general pattern in their mass balance. Further, the more maritime Storsteinsfjellbreen does not seem to collect more snow during the winter than the more continental Storglaciären
