Figure 1. Location and simplified geomorphological setting of Pasterze glacier landsystem with indicated extent of figure 3 (left). View of the landsystem to north-northwest (top right, August 6th 2009) and panorama image of the proglacial zone (bottom right, view to northwest, August 2nd 2011). A distinct attribute of Pasterze Glacier is an extensive supraglacial debris cover. The Margaritze reservoir, from which sedimentation data are used, is located approx. 500 m downstream of the catchment outlet. The sharp contrast in vegetation cover marks the glacier extent of the 'Little Ice Age', a cooling period where glaciers advanced.
