This work was supported by NIWA Strategic Science Internal Funding of the 'Climate Present and Past' project CAOA1901, a subcontract to Victoria University of Wellington from NIWA for 'Structure from Motion of Southern Alps glaciers' and a Victoria University of Wellington Doctoral Scholarship. A.D.K. received support from the Australian Research Council (DE180100638). We thank N. Cullen and P. Sirguey for sharing Brewster mass-balance data, and T. Kerr and H. Purdie for sharing Rolleston mass-balance data. We acknowledge the climate modelling groups that contributed model output to CMIP5 and the groups measuring glacier mass balance that makes up the data in Fig. 1. We thank R. Hock, S. Eaves and C. Lukens for their input, T. Chinn, A. Willsman and A. Woods for their work on the snowline survey.
