WGMS call-for-data

World Glacier Monitoring Service
Dear CRYOLIST-subscriber,

The World Glacier Monitoring Service (WGMS) has opened the call-for-data
for the observation period 2018/19. We are compiling standardized data
on glacier front variations, glaciological mass balances (at point and
glacier-wide level) as well as glacier changes in area, thickness, and
volume from geodetic surveys. Furthermore, we are interested in special
events such as related to glacier surges, avalanches, or lake outburst

If you carried out any type of these measurements during the
hydrological period 2018/19 or if you have data series from earlier
years, you are kindly invited to submit your data via our National
Correspondents who organize the data compilation in their

For more information, data submission guidelines and forms please check
our website:

And the list of National Correspondents: https://wgms.ch/contact-ncs/

Data submission deadline is December 1, 2020.

The compiled glacier fluctuation data (together with reference to
principal investigators, sponsoring agencies, and related literature)
will be published in our online and print products.

If you have any questions concerning the data submission, please do not
hesitate to contact us!

Sincerely yours,

Michael Zemp, on behalf of the WGMS team
