Highlights

- Annual climatic mass balance (Bclim) was negative at 21 of 24 glaciers monitored in 2010-2011.
- Regional mean Bclim (for all available glaciers in 2010-11) was the second most negative value, after 2009-10, in the period 1989-2011. The last time the regional mean Bclim was positive was in 1992-1993.
