More than 25 years of mass budget measurements of Hintereisferner allow a correlation with simultaneous observations of the climatological station Vent (1900 m a. s. l.). By this means it is possible to estimate the mass budget of earlier periods. Extreme values in the period between 1934/35 and 1951/52 span a range nearly twice as wide as in the pcriod thereafter.
