Hydrology: Asian glaciers

Posted on

Water stress makes some region vulnerable economically and socially to drought, but glaciers are a uniquely drought-resilient source of water. The studies show that these glaciers provide summer meltwater to rivers and aquifers that is sufficient for the basic needs of 136 million people, or most of the annual municipal and industrial needs of Pakistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan. During drought summers, meltwater dominates water inputs to the upper Indus and Aral river basins.
