Glaciers in southwest China have a strong influence of climate change weather and climate

Glaciers, as part of thousands of ecosystems, act out an important role in maintaining the population. Significant annual increase in temperature has a devastating impact on mountain glaciers in south-west China. The study, published October 25, 2011 in Environmental Research Letters, the temperature change of the data from 111 weather stations for the period 1961-2008. Researchers at the Chinese Academy of Sciences found three characteristic phenomena caused by rising temperature: glacier retreat, reduced their weight, an increase of glacial lakes. To identify more precisely the relationship between climate change and glacial scientists need to do a deep analysis of the wider range of data.
