With warming in the HKH being higher than the global average (ICIMOD, 2007), climate induced natural hazards are likely to be exacerbated, including severe glacial melting and the formation of glacial lakes and, GLOFs.
Over the past decade, concern for the changes wrought on ecosystems and livelihoods by climate and other changes has prompted greater awareness of the importance of this valuable resource for mountain people and downstream populations. However,
Ice volume estimates are crucial for assessing water reserves stored in glaciers. A variety of different methodologies exist but there is a lack of systematic comparative analysis thereof...
