A comparison is made between the data for the year 1958 shown in the Register of Italian Glaciers and the updated Survey prepared from aerial photos taken in 1989 and published by the Ministry for the Environment in 1993. Variations in the number (+ 118 units) and area (- 2005 hectares) of the glaciers on the Italian side of the Alps are assessed to determine their relation to slope exposure. The conclusion is drawn that exposure provides the main explanation of the fluctuations in the glaciated areas during these 31 years.
