Glacier monitoring Hallstätter Gletscher

Funding: Land Oberösterreich

Project partner: Blueskywetter

Duration: 2012–2017

Project coordination: Andrea Fischer

Project assistants: Kay Helfricht, Martin Stocker-Waldhuber

Glacier monitoring on Hallstatt Glacier in the Dachstein conservation area means creating the summer and winter mass balances using the direct (glaciological) method (Hoinkes 1970) with the Fixed Date System.

In addition to capturing the mass balance, several climate parameters, such as air temperature and precipitation, will be measured on Hallstatt Glacier.

Updated information on the Hallstatt Glacier can be found in the glacier diary on www.dachsteingletscher.info
