Cumulative frequency graph of GLOFs in Nepal,
Bhutan and Tibet. The best-ft line suggests an increase in
GLOF frequency through time, although older events may be
under-reported. GLOFs also took place in Patagonia, Chile in
2008 and 2009 (Dussaillant et al., 2010)(From Richardson
and Reynolds, 2000).
