Definition: Accumulation integrated over the winter season. Winter accumulation is not the same as winter mass balance. It is generally larger because some of the accumulated mass may be lost by ablation. Mass-balance measurements by the glaciological method generally measure winter mass balance and not winter accumulation.  IHPGlacierMassBalance
