    Description: Himalayan glaciers are a focus of public and scientific debate. Prevailing uncertainties are of major concern because some projections of their future have serious implications for water resources. Most Himalayan glaciers are losing mass at rates similar to glaciers elsewhere, except for emerging indications of stability or mass gain in the Karakoram. A poor understanding of the processes affecting them, combined with the diversity of climatic conditions and the extremes of topographical relief within the region, makes projections speculative. Nevertheless, it is unlikely that dramatic changes in total runoff will occur soon, although continuing shrinkage outside the Karakoram will increase the seasonality of runoff, affect irrigation and hydropower, and alter hazards.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Notes: 〈/span〉Bolch, T -- Kulkarni, A -- Kaab, A -- Huggel, C -- Paul, F -- Cogley, J G -- Frey, H -- Kargel, J S -- Fujita, K -- Scheel, M -- Bajracharya, S -- Stoffel, M -- New York, N.Y. -- Science. 2012 Apr 20;336(6079):310-4. doi: 10.1126/science.1215828.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Author address: 〈/span〉Department of Geography, University of Zurich, 8057 Zurich, Switzerland. tobias.bolch@geo.uzh.ch〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Record origin:〈/span〉 〈a href="http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22517852" target="_blank"〉PubMed〈/a〉
