Project ID: EVK2-CT-2000-00069
Financiado con arreglo a: FP5-EESD
País: Austria

Ground based continuous monitoring system on Hintereisferner

An Axis 2120 Network camera was placed on a ridge south of HEF overlooking the central and upper part of the glacier. Two digital 24 bit colour images per day are transmitted to a webserver ( ).

Two automatic weather stations were installed on HEF at ~2600m and ~3050m elevation. Continuous records of air temperature, snow temperature, humidity, solar and IR radiation fluxes and snow/ice height are stored as 10min averages and manually retrieved once a month.

Relevance and potential:
Input into energy balance models of ice melt.
