Length changes of Austrian glaciers 1970 - 2015
The Austrian Alpine Club (Österreichischer Alpenverein) has been coordinating annual measurements of length and surface changes of more than 100 Austrian glaciers for several decades. Besides some glacier inventories, this dataset - a product of voluntary work of many people - represents one of the most comprehensive datasets on Austrian glaciers. The measurements are compiled in the annual glacier reports published by the Austrian Alpine Club. The diagrams are updated every three years. The next update is scheduled for autumn 2019.
