Area-altitude distribution of Khumbu Glacier

Wendell Tangborn
Does an area-altitude distribution for Khumbu Glacier in Nepal exist? If not, are there plans underway to calculate
 one?
It is essential that the altitude intervals are small, so the percent of the total glacier area for each interval does not exceed 6 - 7 %
 
The AA profile will be used along with the Kathmandu met observations to calculate the daily and annual mass balance of this glacier for the 1969-2011 period
using the PTAA balance model
 
Thank you
