Definition: A combination of two time systems of mass-balance measurement, usually of the stratigraphic system with either the fixed-date system or the floating-date system. As originally defined, the combined system accounted rigorously for differences between the stratigraphic and fixed-date systems, but this rigorous accounting has been found impractical in most measurement programmes and various simplifications have been adopted.  IHPGlacierMassBalance
