On the cause of glacier mass balance variations in the Tian Shan Mountains

published at : Tibet and High-Asia. Results of the Sino-German and Russian-German joint expeditions (III)


Results of the special field observations undertaken to study asynchronous changes in mass balance on the glaciers of the Tian Shan. The programme used an imitation model of the mass balance monitoring (Dyurgerov 1988). It was established that the asynchronous changes in mass balance were primarily due to the increase of summer snow accumulation eastward the Tian Shan. The second reason was the difference in the altitudinal position of the glaciers
