Short summary
A post-LIA multitemporal glacier inventory along a latitudinal transect in the Central Italian Alps shows that average annual decrease (AAD) in glacier area has risen by about ten times from 1860--1990 to 1990--2007. When considering glaciers smaller than 0.5 km2, post-1990 AAD follows the latitudinal gradient with maritime-like Orobie glaciers shrinking much less than Disgrazia and Livigno glaciers. We argue that the recent resilience of glaciers in Orobie is due to local climatic decoupling.
