Term: Glacier-wide
Definition: Descriptive of a quantity that, whether or not it is expressed in specific units, has been measured or estimated over the entire glacier. The adjective is used to emphasize that the mass balance is that of the entire glacier and not that at a 'specific' location (for which the recommended term is point mass balance).
