Observations show that glaciers around the world are in retreat and losing mass. Internationally coordinated for over a century, glacier monitoring activities provide an unprecedented dataset of glacier observations from ground, air and space. Glacier studies generally select specific parts of these datasets to obtain optimal assessments of the mass-balance(More)
The Alpine glaciers are sensitive to climate fluctuation, and glacier mass balance may be used as a proxy indicator of the regional climate change impacts. An indirect methodology is presented for determining the distribution of mass balance at high spatial resolution using remote sensing and ground stakes measurements. The method is based on the snowline(More)

While the impacts of climate change on individual species and communities have been well documented there is little evidence on climate-mediated changes for entire ecosystems. Pristine alpine environments can provide unique insights into natural, physical and ecological response to climate change yet broad scale and long-term studies on these potential(More)
