Loss of glacier area was mostly observed below 5600ma.s.l. and was greater for clean-ice glaciers. The equilibrium-line altitude has shifted upward from 5170110ma.s.l. to 5350150ma.s.l. in the years 1980–2010.
In many parts of the Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) region, people live near permafrost or in areas potentially affected by changes in permafrost. Permafrost is ground material (rock or soil) at or below 0 degrees C for two or more years. The surface
