Definition: Ablation integrated over the summer season. Summer ablation is not the same as summer mass balance. It is generally more negative because some of the lost mass may be offset by accumulation. Mass-balance measurements by the glaciological method generally measure summer mass balance and not summer ablation.  IHPGlacierMassBalance
