  1. Accelerated global glacier mass loss in the early twenty-first century 

    Hugonnet, Romain; McNabb, Robert; Berthier, Etienne; et al. (2021)
    Glaciers distinct from the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets are shrinking rapidly, altering regional hydrology1, raising global sea level2 and elevating natural hazards3. Yet, owing to the scarcity of constrained mass loss observations, glacier evolution during the satellite era is known only partially, as a geographic and temporal patchwork4,5. Here we reveal the accelerated, albeit contrasting, patterns of glacier mass loss during the ...

  2. A Framework for Modeling Rock Glaciers and Permafrost at the Basin-Scale in High Alpine Catchments 

    Pruessner L.; Huss M.; Phillips M.; et al. (2021)
    Journal of Advances in Modeling Earth Systems
    Since rock glaciers are believed to be more resilient to climate change, water stores therein may become important water reservoirs in future, in particular in dry regions, which currently rely on glacial runoff. In order to estimate and evaluate the future runoff potential from permafrost and rock glaciers, distributed runoff models suitable for high Alpine catchments are needed. An extension to the distributed Glacier Evolution and ...

  3. Increasing risk of glacial lake outburst floods from future Third Pole deglaciation 

    Zheng, Guoxiong; Allen, Simon K.; Bao, Anming; et al. (2021)
    Nature Climate Change
    Warming on Earth’s Third Pole is leading to rapid loss of ice and the formation and expansion of glacial lakes, posing a severe threat to downstream communities. Here we provide a holistic assessment of past evolution, present state and modelled future change of glacial lakes and related glacial lake outburst flood (GLOF) risk across the Third Pole. We show that the highest GLOF risk is at present centred in the eastern Himalaya, where ...
