All reports published by the World Glacier Monitoring Service (WGMS) as well as reports back to 1895 can be found here. Those references are thus not included in the list on the left.
If a reference on the left contains ‘IAHS Publ. No.’, click on the link and enter the volume number in the field IAHS Publication No. Clicking further on the “+” next to the volume gives access to its description and content.
Volume II “Measurement of Cryospheric Variables” of the Guide on Instruments and Methods of Observation (GIMO) is a contribution of Global Cryosphere Watch (GCW) to ensure high quality and consistent observations and measurements of cryospheric variables made in accordance with accepted standards. Emphasis is put on establishing standards in agreement with the existing ones as well as with guidelines for observations of single cryospheric variables, some of which are routinely used. IACS members contribute substantially to this volume.
Chapter II of Volume II is dedicated to the measurement of snow. The chapter is based on the ICSSG and should be looked at as a regular update to the classification.
