The shrinking glaciers of the Himalayas

About the Image : A photograph of a glacier in the Himachal region of the Himalayas. The changing tinge of colour from blue (left) to red (right) represents the shift to an warmer climate, which forces us to realise the grim reality of having the Himalayan glaciers being completely wiped out in the future! The word Himalaya in the above picture is definitely fading out to oblivion.


Summary
The book chapter is an overview of the status of glaciers in Himachal Pradesh, India by synthesising all available research for this region. Particularly, it deals with the results of a detailed mapping and ground-based measurements of glacier terminus retreat, area vacated and mass/volume changes since the post-Little Ice Age (LIA) till contemporary periods, to elucidate the glacier response to climate and non-climatic factors (e.g. glacier morphology and its topography, debris-cover, and catchment relief), identifies poorly observed basins in terms of glacier studies, highlighting the issues of available glacier inventories and their scope for future studies.
