Abstract

In this paper, a link is identified between the oscillation history, the topographic situation and variations in winter precipitation. The influence of calving dynamics has, at differnt times, both damped and amplified the response to climate change, but the topographic geometry does not permit large-scale, non climatic fluctuations. The Holocene record of glacier behaviour is therefore probably free of calving anomalies
