Predicting the future response of mountain glaciers is fraught
with difficulty. The world’s mountain ranges encompass a
huge range of topographic and climatic environments, and
each glacier has a unique relationship with local terrain and
microclimate. Indeed, local variation is so great that it is impossible to make general statements about glacier response even
within single mountain ranges.
