Results of the direct, glaciological determination of the mass budget of Hintereisferner and Kesselwandferner in the Ötztal Alps are summarized for the years 1075/76-1977/78. Tabulations of budget quantities, accumulation and ablation areas are supplemented by graphs of altitudinal, and areal distribution of mass balance and by examples of the seasonal course of ablation.
