These notes are based on observations made in 1953 on the nature and state of the glaciers in Bünsow Land while the writers were members of the Cambridge Spitsbergen (Physiological) Expedition. Changes in the glacierization of the area, since the compilation of W. B. Harland's map in 1949, are indicated. These changes illustrate some of the ways in which the thinning and decay of the Spitsbergen glaciers have been brought about.

ZUSAMMENFASSUNG. Als die Verfasser im Jahre 1953 Mitglieder der Cambridge Spitsbergen (Physiological) Expedition waren, wurden über die Beschaffenheit und den Zustand der Gletscher in Bünsow Land Beobachtungen gemacht. Anderungen in der Vergletscherung, die seit W. B. Harlands Karte in 1949 aufgetreten sind, werden angegeben. Diese Veränderungen weisen auf einige der Arten hin, in denen die Verdünnung der Eisschicht der Spitzbergener Gletscher und die Verwitterung derselben entstanden sind.
