Implications of Climate Change on Glacier-melt Hydrology in High Mountain Regions


Steve Halea*

Climate change is a pressing global issue that has far-reaching impacts on various ecosystems, including high mountain regions. One of the most visible and critical consequences of climate change in these regions is the accelerated melting of glaciers and its implications on hydrology. This article delves into the intricate relationship between climate change and glacier-melt hydrology in high mountain areas. It explores the key drivers of glacier melt, the resulting hydrological changes, and the broader implications for water resources, ecosystems, and human communities. Through a comprehensive review of scientific literature, this article highlights the urgency of addressing these implications and the potential strategies for adaptation and mitigation.
