Climate-glacier relationship on Mount Kenya
Complementary to our glacier-climate studies on Kilimanjaro we propose to perform a glacier-climate study on Lewis Glacier, Mount Kenya. For Lewis Glacier, the most comprehensive tropical glacier data set is available and respective analyses promise to provide detailed information about post Little Ice Age glacier-climate interactions in a multi spatio-temporal scale. Whereas Kilimanjaro provides insight to atmospheric moisture related glacier and climate variations and changes, from Mount Kenya - that is 1000 m lower - we expect also information on air temperature variations and trends.
