Credner Glacier is on Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, on the northwest slope of the peak and is a remnant of an icecap which once crowned the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. The glacier is situated at an elevation of between 5,800 and 5,500 metres (19,000 and 18,000 ft). Credner Glacier is one of the largest glaciers on the mountain and descends from the Northern Ice Field. Credner is rapidly retreating due to its high exposure point on the northwest slope of Mount Kilimanjaro. A report published in 2013 indicated that in another decade the glacier may no longer exist. * *

dbo:abstract
  • De Crednergletsjer is een gletsjer op de noordwestelijke helling van de Kibo, de hoogste vulkaan van de Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Hij bevindt zich op een hoogte tussen 5500 en 5800 meter boven zeeniveau. De gletsjer is een van de grootste gletsjers op de Kilimanjaro en wordt gevoed door de Northern Ice Field. Het is een restant van de oorspronkelijke ijskap die de top van de vulkaan ooit geheel bedekte en neemt elk jaar in omvang af. Doordat de gletsjer relatief hoog ligt, gebeurt dit in een hoger tempo dan bij de meeste overige gletsjers op de Kibo het geval is. In 2009 werden grote gedeeltes van de onderliggende lava zichtbaar en sommige onderzoekers vermoeden dat de gletsjer rond 2020 geheel verdwenen zal zijn. (nl)
