SYNOPSISThe former existence of 13 glaciers is inferred, comprising 9 in the Cuillins and 4 in the Eastern Red Hills. For each glacier when at its maximal extent the area, volume and equilibrium firn line are determined, and the probable relative importance of direct insolation in the mass balances of the various glaciers is calculated. Glaciers that flowed S and SSW from the radiating corries of the Cuillins were larger and had much lower equilibrium firn lines than those that flowed N and NE, even though di…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
