Melting Himalayan glaciers: a big drop in a bucket that's already full

Journal Article


Abstract


  • A new report has warned that even if global warming is held at 1.5℃, we will still lose a third of the glaciers in the Hindu Kush-Himalaya (HKH) region. What does that mean for rivers that flow down these mountains, and the people who depend on them?
