Melting ice is causing coastal waters in Greenland to become less saline, which may in turn affect marine life as well as the global ocean currents that keep Europe warm, a study warns.

Warming soils are releasing more carbon into the atmosphere than previously thought, suggesting a potentially disastrous feedback mechanism whereby increases in global temperatures will trigger mas

Order of the National Green Tribunal in the matter of Abhimanyu Rathor Vs. State of Himachal Pradesh & Others dated 19/09/2017 regarding degradation of environment and receding of the glaciers at Rohtang Pass. The Counsel appearing for the Applicant prays for time to file the Scheme for Rehabilitation (after the NGT ban on commercial activities and restrictions on the number of vehicles plying for tourists) in relation to house owners, taxis, particularly, diesel taxis, partial rehabilitation and incentive program for the people involved in tourism activities in these areas.

Glaciers in the high mountains of Asia (HMA) make a substantial contribution to the water supply of millions of people, and they are retreating and losing mass as a result of anthropogenic climate change3 at similar rates to those seen elsewhere. In the Paris Agreement of 2015, 195 nations agreed on the aspiration to limit the level of global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius ( °C) above pre-industrial levels. However, it is not known what an increase of 1.5 °C would mean for the glaciers in HMA.

Asia’s mountain glaciers will lose at least a third of their mass through global warming by the century’s end, with dire consequences for millions of people who rely on them for fresh water, resear

Scientists say one-third of the ice stored in Asia's glaciers will be lost by the end of the century even if the world manages to meet its ambitious goal of keeping global warming below 1.5 degrees

Amid locals protest and denial to No Objection Certificate by Palchan and other panchayats of Manali area of Kullu district, chief minister Virbhadra Singh declined the move to construct the ropewa

SHIMLA: Stating that India is facing a challenge of sustaining its rapid economic growth while dealing with threat of climate change globally, chief minister Vibhadra Singh said that a comprehensiv

The history of glacier length fluctuations serves as a reliable indicator of the past climate. In this paper, a numerical flowline model has been used to study the relationship between length variations of Chhota Shigri glacier and local climate since 1876. The simulated front positions of Chhota Shigri glacier are in agreement with those observed. After a successful simulation of the past retreat, the model was also used to predict future evolution of the glacier for the next 100 years under different climatic scenarios.
