Definition: A type of glacier on which the regional seasonality results in extrema of ablation rate and accumulation rate at roughly the same time. On a glacier of summer-accumulation type, mass balance remains relatively stable throughout the year. This is typical of high-altitude, low-latitude glaciers with a summer precipitation maximum.  IHPGlacierMassBalance
