Flag and Himalayas

Year: 2010 Taken by: Lawrence Hislop
Averaged over their entire areas, within the period 1960–2003, glaciers in Patagonia and Alaska have thinned by approximately 35 m and 25 m, respectively, whereas high mountain glaciers in Asia have thinned by over 10 m. Data for Patagonia and Alaska are computed from glacier surface elevations for dozens of glaciers. In many other high mountain environments such as the Himalayas and the high Andes, where data are limited due to both difficult access to the high altitude regions and for political reasons, the exact amount of regional mass loss remains subject to some uncertainty.
