Lengthchange

Name Year Filename Description Author Remarks
Glacier-specific Length Change Figures 2022 List of glacier-specific length change figures Annual and cumulative length changes for every single surveyed glacier Bauder, Andreas -
Length Change Classification 2021 lc_stat_frequency.pdf Temporal pattern of length change for every glacier with ongoing measurements classified according to advance (blue), stationary station (green) and retreat (red). Glaciers are displayed in descending order of current glacier length. Bauder, Andreas -
Length Change Variation 2021 lc_stat_cum_en.pdf Fraction of classified annual glacier length change (advancing, stationary and retreating) for all glaciers with long-term measurement series (annual number of observations shown in top panel). The bottom panel shows the cumulative length change of four iconic glaciers with different characteristics throughout Switzerland. Bauder, Andreas -

Massbalance

Name Year Filename Description Author Remarks
Glacier-specific Massbalance Figures 2021 List of glacier-specific massbalance figures Time series of glacier-wide annual mass balance (grey bars) and seasonal (winter/summer) mass balance (blue/red bars) for every single glacier since the beginning of the surveys. Seasonal mass balances based on modelling instead of direct observations are displayed in light grey. All data have been homogenized to the hydrological year for comparability. The bottom panel shows the cumulative mass balance. Huss, Matthias -
Massbalance Anomaly Annual 2021 massbalance_anomaly_annual.pdf Anomaly of individual observations of glacier-wide ANNUAL mass balance (solid dots) relative to the glacier-specific average of the previous 10 years. Numbers for the individual measurements are given referring to the hydrological year (1 Oct to 30 Sept). Small dots show a regional extrapolation to indicate spatial trends. Years since 2000 are shown in reversed order. Huss, Matthias -
Massbalance Anomaly Winter 2021 massbalance_anomaly_winter.pdf Anomaly of individual observations of glacier-wide WINTER accumulation (solid dots) relative to the glacier-specific average of the previous 10 years. Numbers for the individual measurements are given referring to a fixed period (1 Oct to 30 April). Small dots show a regional extrapolation to indicate spatial trends. Years since 2000 are shown in reversed order. Huss, Matthias -
Massbalance Anomaly Summer 2021 massbalance_anomaly_summer.pdf Anomaly of individual observations of glacier-wide SUMMER mass loss (solid dots) relative to the glacier-specific average of the previous 10 years. Numbers for the individual measurements are given referring to a fixed period (1 May to 30 Sept). Small dots show a regional extrapolation to indicate spatial trends. Years since 2000 are shown in reversed order. Huss, Matthias -
Course of Massbalance 2021 course_of_massbalance.pdf Modelled cumulative course of daily glacier-wide mass balance in the current year constrained by seasonal in situ surveys (black triangles). The average variation of cumulative daily mass balance in the previous 10 years is shown with the grey shading and the top bar provides a classification of the state of the current year relative to the 10-year average. Huss, Matthias -
Volume Evolution 2021 volume_evolution.pdf Evolution of total glacier ice volume since 1980 based on today’s total measured ice volume and a spatial extrapolation of observed mass balance. Results are both shown for all Swiss glaciers, and specified for individual hydrological basins. Numbers for relative ice volume changes are both given for decadal time periods (light blue), and at the annual scale. Huss, Matthias -
Relative Icevolumechange 2021 relative_icevolumechange.pdf Relative annual change in total Swiss glacier ice volume with respect to the previous year. Colours indicate extreme loss (red), strong loss (orange), moderate loss (grey), and gain (blue). The blue shading in the background shows the evolution of overall Swiss glacier volume since 2000.
