Short summary
A time series of four Austrian glacier inventories (GIs) from the LIA maximum state up to the year 2006 show a decrease of glacier area to 44% of the LIA area. The annual relative area losses are 0.3%/year for the period GI LIA to GI 1 (1969), with one period with major glacier advances in the 1920s. From GI 1 to GI 2 (1969-1998, one advance period of variable length in the 1980s) glacier area decreased by 0.6%/year, and from GI 2 to GI 3 (10 years, no advance period) by 1.2%/year.
