Abstract

Into the Second Century of World Glacier Table 3.1 identifies 16 countries for which data exist, Monitoring: Prospects and Strategies. W. but they were not entered in the database as of 1998. Haeberli, M. Hoelzler, and S. Suter, Eds. 1998. 227 Such problems reflect the general lack of support for pp. $40.00. Softbound. UNESCO Publishing. ISBN these activities by national and international agencies. 92-3-103434-0 . In Canada, which has about 33,000 glaciers represent- ing 40% of the world's glacier area (Barry 1995), no agency today is charged with routine glacier monitor- A coordinated international program of glacier ob- ing. The available WGI data are currently made acces- servations began under the International Glacier Com- sible via the World Wide Web of the WGMS and mission (IGC) in 1894. To mark the centenary of this World Data Center-A for Glaciology in Boulder, Colo- program, a workshop was held in October 1995 in rado (http ://w w w .nsidc. Colorado. edu). Zurich, Switzerland. This publication presents 12 pa- Chapters on the analysis of data on glacier mass pers by the invited experts and reproduces the origi- balance by L. Reynaud and S.
