Ice velocity, net mass budget and surface elevation change data were collected over the length and width of a small (3.4 km. long) valley glacier from 1957 to 1964. Ice velocities range up to about 20 m./yr.; three prominent velocity maxima along the length of the glacier correspond to maxima in surface slope. Net mass budgets averaged over the glacier surface range between − 3.3 m. of water equivalent (1957–58) and +1.2 m. (1963–64). Except for the year 1960–61, curves of net budget versus altitude are parallel. During the period 1958–61 the glacier became thinner at a rate averaging 0.93 m./yr. The net budget and thinning data are internally consistent. Relations between emergence velocity, net budget and surface elevation change are examined at four specific points on the glacier surface and as functions of distance along the length of the glacier. Emergence velocity averages about −0.5 m. in the upper part of the glacier and about +1.0 m. in the lower part. Ice discharge and ice thickness are also calculated as functions of distance. The discharge reaches a peak of 8.8 × 105 m.3 of ice per year 2.2 km. from the head of the glacier. The mean thickness of the glacier is about 83 m. A steady-state distribution of net budget is used to calculate a steady-state discharge, which is 2.2 times larger than the present discharge.
