We have analyzed records of glacier-front variations, mass-balance reconstructions, temperature and precipitation data of Alpine stations, and found that the difference between summer and winter temperature in connection with winter precipitation is a useful indicator of glacier activity. Application of this parameter to the records of six stations since 1860 indicated the advance around 1920 had been preceded by a decade with frequent positive mass balances, while the period 1928–64 wasdoi:10.1017/s0260305500012118 fatcat:6qhewvg3jvhozaffzgia2n7bvy
