The value of these studies on glaciers in California is greatly enhanced by the fact that systematic measurements of snowfall are now made periodically by the California Cooperative Snow Surveys. These show that in 1932 the snowfall was uniformly much greater than in 1933, a significant observation in view of the fact that the glaciers of the Sierras are reported to have advanced in the fall of 1932 and receded in 1933.
