The data is based on aerial imagery and stereophotogramatic analysis of the Federal Office of Topography, Switzerland (swisstopo) within the framework of the Topographic Landscape Model of Switzerland (swissTLM3D). Furthermore, the dataset has been glaciologically revised in the frame of GLAMOS (Glacier Monitoring in Switzerland, ETH Zurich, University of Zurich, University of Fribourg, Switzerland). The data is delivered as a shapefile. 2020 in prep.

Lengthchange

DOI Description Date Remarks
10.18750/lengthchange.2018.r2018 Glacier length changes are measured annually at the tongues of all larger and on many of the smaller Swiss glaciers and provide an overview of their long-term variations. The dataset contains all available observations up to present and is delivered as a .csv file. 2018
10.18750/lengthchange.2019.r2019 2019
10.18750/lengthchange.2020.r2020 2020

Massbalance

DOI Description Date Remarks
10.18750/massbalance.2018.r2018 Direct measurements of glacier mass balance - the sum of snow accumulation and snow/ice melt - are carried out on selected glaciers in Switzerland. Based on point observations, typically acquired in April/May and September, glacier-wide quantities of seasonal mass balance (winter/summer/annual) are evaluated, expressed as a an area-averaged value of water eqivalent. The dataset contains all available observations up to present and is delivered as four separate .csv files with results both for the exact measurement periods (observation, varying between the years) and the hydrological year (fixdate), as well as for glacier-wide quantities and for individual elevation bins. 2018
10.18750/massbalance.2019.r2019 2019
10.18750/massbalance.2020.r2020 2020
10.18750/massbalance.2020.r2021 2020

Massbalance Point

DOI Description Date Remarks
10.18750/massbalance.point.2020.r2020 Direct observations of point glacier mass balance have been carried out at one up to several dozens of sites on more than 50 individual glaciers in the Swiss Alps over the past century. The measurements represent the basis for seasonal mass balance monitoring. Data are aggregated to three time periods - annual (referring to a time interval of about 1 year, e.g. Oct.-Sept.), winter (referring to an entire winter season, e.g. Oct.-May), or intermediate (referring to an arbitrary period of a day up to several months). Metadata and estimated uncertainties are specified for different variables according to a system of quality indicators. 2020

Volumechange

DOI Description Date Remarks
10.18750/volumechange.2018.r2018 The comparison of digital elevation models derived from aerial remote sensing allows the computation of glacier ice volume changes over periods of years to decades. Ice volume changes have been converted to geodetic mass balances assuming a density of volume change of 850 kg m-3. The dataset contains all available observations for the most important Swiss glaciers up to present and is delivered as a .csv file. 2018
