Glacier shrinkage in the Andes and consequences for water resources—Editorial

Abstract

The state of mountain glaciers is a good climatic indicator of the global warming of the planet—one of most spectacular, and persuasive, manifestations of climate change. Numerous studies worldwide show a widespread, and well documented, retreat of mountain glaciers in non-polar regions of the world during the 20th century (IPCC, 2001).
