Abstract:

Glaciological studies during the British Ruwenzori Expedition, 1052, included assessment of the extent of Pleistocene glaciation and detailed study of the late-glacial and post-glacial fluctuations of two of the glaciers originating in the Stanley Plateau. Correlation between photographs taken by earlier expeditions, the stratigraphy of lake site excavations and lichen re-colonization provide a good preliminary basis for assessing the climatic fluctuations. Stratification in existing glaciers appears to link up satisfactorily with meteorological observations to indicate two ablation phases annually.
