As populations increase in glacierized mountain regions such as the Andes and the Himalaya, more and more people are becoming exposed to glacier hazards.

Furthermore, glacier recession is leading to the development of an increasing number of dangerous glaciers, and mitigation measures are needed to prevent future :// Get this from a library.

Glacier hazards. [Lance Tufnell] -- Describes how glacier fluctuations due to climatic changes as well as glacier floods and ice avalanches have interfered with human activity throughout history. A case-study of glacier fluctuations in   Glacier hazards are natural Earth processes associated with alpine glaciers, ice caps, or ice sheets that threaten people or property.

And threats remain pressing as GLOFs and other glacier hazards are exacerbated with climate change and glacier shrinkage, as the most recent IPCC special report on oceans and the cryosphere demonstrates clearly.

from book Geographic information systems (GIS) and natural hazards (pp) To investigate the evolution of glacier hazards and evaluate the glacier thinning rate, we also used UAV data Glacier- and permafrost-related hazards represent a continuous threat to human lives and infrastructure in high mountain regions.

Related disasters can kill hundreds or even thousands of people at once and cause damage with a global sum on the order of 10 8 Euro annually. Glacier and permafrost hazards in high mountains include: This book offers a comprehensive and detailed summary of our knowledge and understanding of glaciers and sets them within a global environment context.

The text explains the significance both of recent advances in glaciology, and of teh many research problms that remain to be solved. The accessible style adopted in the text facilitates a clear understanding of glaciers and the role they play ?id=8UH50bmJ5aYC. Mountain glaciers are highly sensitive to temperature and precipitation fluctuations and active geomorphic agents in shaping the landforms of glaciated regions which are direct imprints of past glaciations, providing reliable evidence of the evolution of the past Cryosphere and contain important information on climatic variables.

Climate change is producing profound changes globally. Yet we still know little about how it affects real people in real places on a daily basis because most of our knowledge comes from scientific studies that try to estimate impacts and project future climate scenarios.
