At the moment, the descriptions of glacial retreat in the Himalayas offer broad-brush accounts and rely heavily on models for their information.
I have traveled the world to see the impacts for myself, from the Arctic to the Antarctic, from the low-lying islands of the Pacific threatened by rising seas to the retreating glaciers of Greenland, the Andes and the Alps. I have seen encroaching ...

A highlight of any stay in Gros Morne is the boat trip round Western Brook Pond, a fjord carved out by the retreating glaciers of the ice age. The boat leaves at 1100, but you have to drive 20 miles up the road from Rocky Harbour, then walk almost two ...
In a separate chapter, its progress is documented with maps, time lines and personal anecdotes. Among the researchers' major worries while on expeditions is the increasing number of icebergs, spawned by retreating glaciers, through which their vessel ...
Seven hydel projects with an installed capacity of about 4134MW are in various stages of completion, while 11 others with an installed capacity of about 1961MW are in various stages of investigation.
Retreat of Yakutat Glacier. Aug 21, 2014. Located in the Brabazon Range of southeastern Alaska, Yakutat Glacier is one of the fastest retreating glaciers in the world. It is the primary outlet for the 810-square kilometer (310-square mile) Yakutat .

Meltwater from retreating glaciers, seasonal snowfall and rain carried topsoil and sand from as far away as the Canadian prairies.
To Whistler Blackcomb (WB), retreating glaciers are nothing new. "We've been following this for decades. The UN environmental program puts out data on glaciers throughout the world, and in most cases glaciers are receding globally.
From 1991 to 2010, humans were responsible for 70 percent of glacial retreat. Of course, there are uncertainties in the study, as whenever models are used to infer what happened in the past.
Unfortunately, this is the ugly truth of the Himalayas. The heap, which includes biodegradable plastic, can be found just four kilometres from Shimla in the reserved forest of Lalpani.

Ecologists like Hauer say there are other changes happening as well - retreating glaciers, and more flash floods. "One of the expectations with climate change is that we're going to see a decrease in the permanent streams, particularly in the high ...
The evidence comes from direct measurements of rising surface air temperatures and subsurface ocean temperatures and from phenomena such as increases in average global sea levels, retreating glaciers, and changes to many physical and biological ...

There is a record of temperature measurements, and pictures of melting ice poles and shrinking glaciers. The idea of a changing climate, however, in my thinking, has always been associated with the grand sweeps of geologic time that we find indicated ...
Brian Menounos, an associate professor of geography at the University of Northern British Columbia, says he is aware that the rate of glacial retreat appears to be accelerating in many cases. "We know that many of these mountain glaciers are not long ...
Geoff told us it is a kettle hole, scooped out by retreating glaciers some ten thousand years ago. The pond covers 61 acres, is a mile and two thirds around, and is very deep.

If there are further delays because of retreating glaciers or bad horoscope readings no one in Barrhaven will be surprised.
Richards "calmly and quietly" explains what's known from ice cores about atmospheric carbon dioxide levels and about global warming and the bay's thinning and retreating glaciers. In this way, Heacox calmly completes his compelling case for John Muir's ...
... beginning of a warming trend that causes glacial retreat. In other words, a moraine indicates that the glacier is beginning to retreat after reaching a maximum extent, and, hence, a moraine indicates a temperature minimum before the climate begins ...
Each watershed is unique, with a character all its own, and yet they are all similar in the sense that they flow from a dome of anorthrocite, set upon a vast landscape which was shaped and softened under the weight and scouring effects of retreating ...

shrinking glaciers on the Dachstein Mountains in Austria will affect water supplies far downstream in local areas and in distant rivers.
Melting at a rate of almost 200 metres per year, it's also one of the fastest-shrinking glaciers in British Columbia. Bridge Glacier may vanish in my lifetime.

While the link between retreating glaciers and human-triggered global warming has become a given, the team was unaware of any other study performing the kind of formal attribution analysis that other aspects of global warming, or global warming itself, ...
The study points to human activity and specifically to our use of fossil fuels as the reason behind the shrinking glaciers.
Members of Greenpeace USA had set out to make a timelapse video of a stunning valley in Glacier National Park to raise awareness about climate change and how it's impacting the park's shrinking glaciers and alpine tundra. Instead, they got something ...
Glaciers in the Tibetan plateau supply water for hundreds of millions of people in Asia, so naturally this glacial retreat puts this resource in jeopardy.
In addition to threatening the freshwater supply, shrinking glaciers on the Tibetan plateau will likely lead to more floods and landslides, the report found.
Locals say they have witnessed the changes brought about by the retreating glaciers. "This all used to be ice ten years ago," Tibetan farmer Jia Son says of the glacier near his village of Mingyong.
The shrinking glaciers scientists are seeing today are in part the aftereffects of the Little Ice Age, which peaked in the mid-19th century.
In a remote corner of southeastern Alaska, two glaciers are retreating at a rapid pace. Compared with a vintage satellite photo of the region, an image taken from space last year reveals just how much the glaciers have shrunk over the past 26 years.
We are already seeing increasing temperatures of the oceans, and retreating glaciers across much of the globe. Explain the impact of increasing ocean temperatures on Antarctic ice shelves.
Massive scarring observed on the lake bed also shows the course of the retreating glaciers after the last ice age, he said.
Time lapse photography of shrinking glaciers makes a powerful visual case for the impact of human-caused global warming. That's why, for example, it's used in former Vice President Al Gore's slideshow, An Inconvenient Truth, and by GlacierWorks, ...
But it seems to have happened only occasionally, which suggests to some that natural climatic fluctuations, in the form of advancing and retreating glaciers, pushed the bears together, encouraging intermixture. The widespread evidence of intermixing ...
Along with Canadian Cree actor Michelle Thrush and her 14-year-old daughter Imajyn, the group has visited retreating glaciers, heard lectures on climate impacts in the north and the plastic crisis in our oceans, encountered walruses, seals and reindeer ...
Initial rock sample assays was received from newly exposed areas of surface mineralization that was uncovered due to glacial retreat at the Cambria zone, approximately 500 meters southeast and on trend with the Marc-AV resource area. Similar to the ...
Polar caps are shrinking. Glaciers are disappearing. These are measurable facts. n If Don Surber thinks he knows more than the scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, he is delusional.
