Description :
The AA. review the different factors that potentially complicate inferences about climate-induced glacier response based on proglacial lake sediments. They discuss each component separately, starting with the climate forcing on the glacier mass balance and resulting glacier volume and length variations; glacier sediment production and sediment fluxes out from glaciers and proglacial areas; and finally the glacio-lacustrine record of glacier variations. They exemplify the first two components with data from Storglaciären, northern Sweden, and its proglacial river and surroundings. The AA. conclude that it is necesary to consider all possible influencing factors in order to derive reliable palaeoclimate data from lacustrine sediment sequences.
