Dear CRYOLIST-subscriber,

The World Glacier Monitoring Service (WGMS) has opened the call-for-data 
for the observation period 2017/18. 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 2017/18 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: http://wgms.ch/contact_ncs/

Data submission deadline is December 1, 2019.

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
