Glacier Mass Balance of Kesselwandferner, Oetztal Alps, Austria, from 1952/53-2009/10


The data represent annual values of the glacier mass balance measured with the direct glaciological method. The mass balance is calculated from ablation of ice and accumulation of snow measured at about 10 to 20 stakes for the mass balance year from 1 October to 30 September of the following year. The data comprises the glacier area, the net mass balance for the total glacier area as well as specified for the ablation and accumulation area, the altitude of the equilibrium line (ELA) and the specific mass balance.
