Climate Change. Folgefonna Glacier
Folgefonna makes for an apt illustration of the recent perturbations in our climate.

Melting glaciers also augment the risk of glacial lake outburst floods, a very serious hazard for many regions. The glaciers of the Himalayas for example are severely under sampled – the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change.
