Group: Summary

   This data set provides glacier surface ablation rates for a network of 
   approximately 250 sites on Taylor Glacier, spanning a period from 2003 to 
   2011. Here sublimation is the dominant ablation mechanism, though a few sites 
   have accumulation. Ablation data are provided in meters water equivalent per 
   year. 

   Data are available via FTP in space-delimited ASCII format.
