    Recent glacier and climate change in the New Zealand Alps
    Ruddell, Andrew Reginald ( 1995-07)
    The sensitivity of glaciers in the Southern Alps of New Zealand is evaluated to identify the nature of recent climate change. Past glaciological observations are compiled and to these are added 4 summer field seasons on the Tasman (including Hochstetter), Dart, Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers. The field data are an important aspect in the calibration and verification of glacier modelling. The detailed studies of these glaciers provides the basis for assessing the glacier and climatic changes over the whole glacierized region. (For complete abstract open document)
