Focus Group: Glacier, Climate and Hydrological Systems

Thematic Frame

This focus group is meant for researchers working on topics related to glaciology, hydrology and climate in mountainous environments. It includes, but is not limited to, topics such as local to global-scale modeling of glaciers and isolating the specific input required for these models, observing and monitoring glaciers with different methods (e.g. remote sensing data), and tracking hydrological changes in the pro-glacial system.
