Group: Summary

   This study monitored the summer temperatures (July and August)  of the springs 
   at the base of the rock glaciers' fronts and talus cones of Fagaras and 
   Retezat Mountains. These water measurements have been made since 1986. BTS  
   (bottom temperature of snow) measurements were made in the same areas during  
   the second and third weeks of February since 1992.  Data are presented on the 
   CAPS Version 1.0 CD-ROM, June 1998.
