That estimate of the rate of Himalayan glacier loss because of warming, which appeared in the same assessment that earned the global body a share of the Nobel Peace Prize, was "poorly substantiated," the IPCC said. During our visit to Gangotri, we were privileged and honored to meet Swami Sundarananda, the 86 year old sadhu, mountaineer, photographer and environmental leader. Additional reporting: Ian Wylie.

In the article, "Flooded Out," Indian glaciologist Syed Hasnain speculates that the Himalayan glaciers could vanish within 40 years as a result of global warming. The infamous mistake in the United Nations IPCC report, which erroneously claimed Himalayan glaciers would mostly disappear byand the importance of mountain water to more than a billion people, have brought increased scrutiny to glacier changes and the importance of the meltwater. Highlighting this error to undermine climate science, however, is a classic example of cherry picking — a dangerous game to play with million livelihoods at stake. Hasnain, meanwhile, remains a leader of the other faction that sees strong evidence for global warming's dramatic impact on the glaciers.

Unusual ice The Karakoram is a picturesque chain of snowy peaks along the border of India, Pakistan and China. Jean-Pascal van Ypersele Inventory of the Himalayan glaciers book, vice-chair of the IPCC, added that the mistake did nothing to undermine the large body of evidence that showed the climate was warming and that human activity was largely to blame. The admission today followed a New Scientist article last week that revealed the source of the claim made in the report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change IPCC was not peer-reviewed scientific literature — but a media interview with a scientist conducted in Remote sensing based techniques, models and methods to generate a large amount of digital database and maps to understand the state of Himalayan cryosphere has now assumed greater significance when the nation needs to address a large number of questions about the health and state of glaciers. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change IPCC was forced to admit to relying on dubious scientific sources, apologized and retracted its earlier estimate. Its total area will likely shrink from the presenttosquare kilometers by the year

To claim this error undermines the basic conclusions of climate change is absurd. The rest is from rainwater and groundwater -- which of course are also under great threat from climate changes as well as intense population pressure and staggering Inventory of the Himalayan glaciers book.

Snow on the Himalayas is the source for numerous glaciers. The western end terminates at a magnificent point near Nanga Parbat killer mountain where Karakoram, Himalayas and Hindu Kush ranges intersects. The IPCC apologized, and said it will remove the date from its report.

Many mid and low altitude lakes remain poorly studied in terms of their hydrology and biodiversity, like Khecheopalri in the Sikkim Eastern Himalayas. The rivers of the Himalayas drain into two large river systems: The western rivers combine into the Indus Basin. This area marks the start of the Punjab Himalaya and the Sutlej riverthe most easterly of the five tributaries of the Induscuts through the range here.

This may be an effect of rising temperatures and effects of climate change on monsoons and storms. In recent years, scientists have monitored a notable increase in the rate of glacier retreat across the region as a result of climate change.

Why Asia's Glaciers Are Mysteriously Expanding, Not Melting

The river originates in a glacier kilometers Inventory of the Himalayan glaciers book. The other Himalayan rivers drain the Ganges-Brahmaputra Basin. The great northern plains of India sustain on the perennial melt of snow and glaciers meeting the water requirements of agriculture, industries, domestic sector even in the months of summer when large tracts of the country go dry.

Its main rivers are the Gangesthe Brahmaputra and the Yamunaas well as other tributaries. He published a paper in August presenting evidence that the famed Siachen glacier has shown "hardly any" retreat.

Most Read. The controversy centers on a paragraph in Chapter 10 of the report which states: "Glaciers in the Himalaya are receding faster than in any other part of the world, and if the present rate continues, the likelihood of them disappearing by the year and perhaps sooner is very high if the Earth keeps warming at the current rate.

That article attributed the prediction to Syed Iqbal Hasnain, a noted Indian glaciologist, who denies he put forth such a date.

The report acknowledges that India has not put enough money into glacial research and announced the future creation of a new research institute.
