## An upper-bound estimate for the accuracy of glacier volume–area scaling

### In: The Cryosphere, 2013, vol. 7, no. 6, p. 1707–1720

Volume–area scaling is the most popular method for estimating the ice volume of large glacier samples. Here, a series of resampling experiments based on different sets of synthetic data is presented in order to derive an upper-bound estimate (i.e. a level achieved only within ideal conditions) for its accuracy. For real-world applications, a lower accuracy has to be expected. We also quantify... More
