On the mass balance of low latitude glaciers with particular consideration of the Peruvian Cordillera Blanca

Description :
Glacier mass balance studies in the low latitudes are rare and glaciological methods and terminology are basically adapted from mid- and high latitude conditions. In this study, the discussion is concentrated on the Peruvian Cordillera Blanca whose topographical setting provides both spatial and temporal subdivisions in humid and dry regimes in one region. A combination of ablation measurements and the application of the flux divergence method for the determination of accumulation is proposed.
