Group: Summary

   This data set consists of glacier regime parameters observed between 1945 and 
   2003. Data include annual mass balances, ablation, accumulation, and 
   equilibrium-line altitude of mountain and subpolar glaciers outside the two 
   major ice sheets. All available sources of information, such as publications, 
   archived data, and personal communications have been collected, and include 
   time series of more than 300 glaciers. Data have been digitized and quality 
   checked. The data are available on CD-ROM from the Institute of Arctic and 
   Alpine Research (INSTAAR) when a hardcopy of INSTAAR Occasional Paper #55 is 
   ordered, or on FTP from NSIDC.
