Himalayan glaciers losing ice quickly than others

Date: 24 December 2021 Tags: Climate Change
  • Himalayan glaciers are melting at an exceptional rate because of global warming, threatening the water supply of millions of people in Asia.
  • Glaciers in the Himalayas have lost ice 10 times more quickly in the past few decades than on average since the last major glacier expansion 400-700 years ago.
  • The study found that 14,798 Himalayan glaciers have lost around 40% of their area compared to the Little Ice Age.
  • The eastern Himalayas are more sensitive to warming and glacier shrinkage. The number and size of glacial lakes are increasing, which causes further acceleration glacier mass loss.
