    Aug 21,  · It explores the interface between glacier science and environmental change, in the past, present, and future. Written by the world’s foremost authorities in the subject and researchers at the scientific frontier where conventional wisdom of approach comes face to face with unsolved problems, this book provides. [2] There is considerable interest in retrieving information on past climatic history using records of glacier fluctuations and in determining future changes in size and distribution of glaciers caused by possible future global climate change [e.g., Haeberli and Beniston, ; Oerlemans, ].

    This paper presents an updated, extensive review of glacier fluctuations during the past years in the extratropical Andes of South America between ca. 17° and 55°S. Given the variety of environmental conditions and evidence available for glacier fluctuations across this wide latitudinal range, regional accounts are given for the Desert Andes (∼17°°S), the Andes of central Chile Cited by: In his Bowman Memorial Lecture of , "Glacier Variations and Climatic Fluctuations," he brought together material collected by glaciologists, clima­ tologists, meteorologists, oceanographers, Quaternary geologists, geomorphologists, botanists, zoologists, historians, and others.

    The response of glaciers to intrinsic climate variability: observations and models of late Holocene variations in the Pacific Northwest glacier variations significantly different (in a statistical sense) from what would be expected as a represent the climatic forcing separated into precipitation and. Abstract. Non-climatically controlled fluctuations of glacier termini were studied in two regions in Alaska. In the Wrangell Mountains, eight glaciers on Mt. Wrangell, an active volcano, have been monitored over the past 30 years using terrestrial surveys, aerial photogrammetry and .

The intermediate warmer and drier phase was probably characterized by more frequent and persistent anticyclones and less wind. @article{osti_, title = {Climatic fluctuations of the Ice Age}, author = {Frenzel, B.}, abstractNote = {This is a review of Burkhard Frenzel's book by R.E.

Variations in Earth's orbit through time have changed the amount of solar radiation Earth receives in each season. Interglacial periods tend to happen during times of more intense summer solar radiation in the Northern Hemisphere.

These glacial–interglacial cycles have waxed and waned throughout the Quaternary Period (the past million years). The response of glaciers to intrinsic climate variability: observations and models of late-Holocene variations in the Pacific Northwest Gerard H.

Although numerous studies have investigated the relationship between glaciers and climate change, glacier-climate studies that focus on an entire mountain range and integrate in-situ measurements, remote sensing data and modelling.Ablation occurs throughout the year and glacier mass balance has a large amplitude response to temperature variations.

Furthermore, outlet valley glaciers experience dynamic length variations in response to climatic change.
