    Despite recent research identifying a clear anthropogenic impact on glacier recession, the effect of recent climate change on glacier-related hazards is at present unclear. Here we present the first global spatio-temporal ...
  • Wilson, Ryan; Glasser, Neil; Reynolds, John M.; Harrison, Stephan; Iribarren Anacona, Pablo; Schaefer, Marius; Shannon, Sarah (2018-01-31)
    The prevalence and increased frequency of high-magnitude Glacial Lake Outburst Floods (GLOFs) in the Chilean and Argentinean Andes suggests this region will be prone to similar events in the future as glaciers continue to ...

    The environmental, socio-economic and cultural significance of glaciers has motivated several countries to regulate activities on glaciers and glacierized surroundings. However, laws written to specifically protect mountain ...

    In response to climatic change, the size and number of moraine-dammed supraglacial and proglacial lake systems have increased dramatically in recent decades. Given an appropriate trigger, the natural moraine dams that ...

    The instability of moraine-dammed proglacial lakes creates the potential for catastrophic glacial lake outburst floods (GLOFs) in high-mountain regions. In this research, we use a unique combination of numerical dam-breach ...
  • Quincey, Duncan J.; Lucas, Richard M.; Richardson, S. D.; Glasser, Neil F.; Hambrey, Michael; Reynolds, John M. (2005)
    Remote sensing studies have shown that glaciers and their proximal environments exhibit unique temporal, spatial and spectral characteristics that can be analysed to better quantify glacial hazard potential. In this review, ...

    Recession of high-mountain glaciers in response to climatic change frequently results in the development of moraine-dammed glacial lakes. Moraine dam failure is often accompanied by the release of large volumes of water ...

    This paper presents the sediment, landform and dynamic context of four avalanche-fed valley glaciers (Khumbu, Imja, Lhotse and Chukhung) in the Mount Everest (Sagarmatha) region of Nepal. All four glaciers have a mantle ...
