Data series are continuous and cover few decades.This site is also characterized by the complete glaciological parameters performed annually to complete annual and seasonnal mass balance : ice velocity, ice thickness variation, snout position.In addition, meteorological observations complete the data base. GEB is a part of the French Glacier Observatory GLACIOCLIM/CRYOBS-CLIM.
