Accumulation and ablation measurements on Morsárjökull are described and a tentative glacier budget for the three seasons 1951‐52, 1952‐53 and 1953‐54 is presented. Observations of glacier flow on Morsárjökull, Svinafellsjökull and Skaftafellsjökull are considered. The recent fluctuations of the snouts of Skaftafellsjökull and Svinafellsjökull are discussed and related to variations in the height of the accumulation zones of the glaciers; recent glacier thinning is also mentioned.
