The World Glacier Monitoring Service (WGMS) has opened the call-for-data for the observation period 2018/19. We are compiling standardized data on glacier front variations, glaciological mass balances (at point and glacier-wide level) as well as glacier changes in area, thickness, and volume from geodetic surveys. Furthermore, we are interested in special events such as related to glacier surges, avalanches, or lake outburst floods. For more information, data submission guidelines and forms please check our website. Data submission deadline is December 1, 2020.
If you carried out any type of these measurements during the hydrological period 2018/19 or if you have data series from earlier
years, you are kindly invited to submit your data via our National Correspondents who organize the data compilation in their
And the list of National Correspondents: https://wgms.ch/contact-ncs/
Data submission deadline is December 1, 2020.
The compiled glacier fluctuation data (together with reference to principal investigators, sponsoring agencies, and related literature) will be published in our online and print products.
If you have any questions concerning the data submission, please do not hesitate to contact us!
