|.||.||The WGMS regularly collects data for the production of the 'Fluctuations of Glaciers' and the 'Glacier Mass Balance Bulletin' series. The Call-for-Data is sent out through the national correspondents of WGMS who organize the collection and the submission of the glacier data according to the WGMS standards within their country. Apart from the official Calls-for-Data, the WGMS welcomes any glacier data that is submitted according to the standards described below.
The WGMS currently calls for glacier fluctuation data (i.e., changes in length, area, thickness, volume, and mass) covering the observation period 2010/11, as well as addenda from earlier years. Based on the compiled data and information, we will produce the 'Glacier Mass Balance Bulletin No. 12 (2010-2011)'.
The next call-for-data 2011/12 will be launched in fall 2013.
For the submission of glacier fluctuation data (i.e., glacier changes over time) please carefully read the General Guidelines for Data Submission as well as the Notes on the Completion of the Data Sheets and use the excel-based Digital Data Submission Form of the WGMS!
For the submission of glacier reconstructions (i.e., front variation series), more information can be found here.
For the submission of other glacier datasets (i.e., inventory, photographs) please check the GTN-G website!
If you have any further questions concerning the data submission, please do not hesitate to contact us!
