The paper "Reconstructing the mass balance of Brewster Glacier, New Zealand, using MODIS-derived glacier-wide albedo" has been published in The Cryosphere. Jono Conway is a co-author on the paper, which presents a novel method to monitor whether glaciers are gaining or losing mass using the reflectance of a glacier surface measured by satellites. The method was applied to Brewster Glacier in the Southern Alps and allowed the current mass balance record to be extended into the past.  The link to the paper can be found here.
