Rapid decline of the San Quintin glacier, Northern Patagonia

Year: 2010 Author: Viktor Novikov, Zoï Environment
Description:
Glaciers grow and retreat at intervals depending on changes in local climate, and local variations in temperature and precipitation play a particularly important role in this. Retreating and diminishing mountain glaciers all over the world, except in the Antarctica, indicate a general trend of global warming. In addition to its rapid decrease in size, the San Quintín glacier located in North Patagonia, Chile, has also been exhibiting cracks and fractures in recent years.
