Activity

  • Shrinking Himalayan glaciers and Consequences
    Activity Date: Sunday, January 24, 2021 - 15:30 UTC
    Duration: 200 min
    Brief Description:

    The Himalayas in South Asia are the third largest deposit of ice and snow in the world, after Antarctica and the Arctic. The ice and snow in the region are the source for Asia’s mighty rivers including the Indus, the Yangtze, and the Ganga-Brahmaputra. That’s double the amount of melting that took place from 1975 to 2000, revealing that the ice loss is accelerating with rising temperatures. It’s also threatening water supplies for hundreds of millions of people downstream across much of Asia.
