Mass Balance Data

Chris McNeil at the Gulkana Glacier

USGS Benchmark Glaciers

Direct field measurements are combined with weather data and imagery analyses to calculate the seasonal and annual mass balance of each glacier.  This data release includes seasonal and annual glacier-wide mass balance, and the input point measurements and elevation data used for these calculations. Files are described in detail within the release.
