Glaciers distinct from the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets cover an area of approximately 706,000 square kilometres globally1, with an estimated total volume of 170,000 cubic kilometres, or 0.4 metres of potential sea-level-rise equivalent2. Retreating and thinning glaciers are icons of climate change3 and affect regional runoff4 as well as global sea level5,6. In past reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, estimates of changes in glacier mass were based on the… 
Elevation Changes of West-Central Greenland Glaciers From 1985 to 2012 From Remote Sensing
Greenlandic glaciers distinct from the ice sheet make up 12% of the global glacierized area and store about 10% of the global glacier ice volume (Farinotti et al., 2019). However, knowledge about
Glacier Changes in Iceland From ∼1890 to 2019
The volume of glaciers in Iceland (∼3,400 k m 3 in 2019) corresponds to about 9 mm of potential global sea level rise. In this study, observations from 98.7% of glacier covered areas in Iceland (in
The Future of Alpine Glaciers and Beyond
Like many comparable mountain ranges at lower latitudes, the European Alps are increasingly losing their glaciers. Following roughly 10,000 years of limited climate and glacier variability, with a

Abstract. Glaciers in tropical regions are very sensitive to climatic variations and thus strongly affected by climate change. The majority of the tropical glaciers worldwide are located in the

Regional differences in global glacier retreat from 1980 to 2015
Abstract Global warming triggers shrinking and thinning of glaciers worldwide, with potentially severe implications for human society. However, regional differences in glacier retreat and its
Region-Wide Annual Glacier Surface Mass Balance for the European Alps From 2000 to 2016
Studying glacier mass changes at regional scale provides critical insights into the impact of climate change on glacierized regions, but is impractical using in situ estimates alone due to logistical
A globally complete, spatially and temporally resolved estimate of glacier mass change: 2000 to 2019
<p>The world&#8217;s glaciers distinct from the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets are shrinking rapidly, altering regional hydrology and raising global sea level. Yet, due to the scarcity of
Accelerated global glacier mass loss in the early twenty-first century.
TLDR
The accelerated, albeit contrasting, patterns of glacier mass loss during the early twenty-first century are revealed, and highly resolved estimates are anticipated to advance the understanding of drivers that govern the distribution of glacier change, and to extend the capabilities of predicting these changes at all scales.
Geodetic Mass Balance of the South Shetland Islands Ice Caps, Antarctica, from Differencing TanDEM-X DEMs
TLDR
The results are consistent with a wider scale geodetic mass balance estimation and with glaciological mass balance measurements at SSI locations for the same study period and are also consistent with the cooling trend observed in the region between 1998 and the mid-2010s.

A Reconciled Estimate of Glacier Contributions to Sea Level Rise: 2003 to 2009
TLDR
It is found that glaciers in the Arctic, Canada, Alaska, coastal Greenland, the southern Andes, and high-mountain Asia contribute approximately as much melt water as the ice sheets themselves: 260 billion tons per year between 2003 and 2009, accounting for about 30% of the observed sea-level rise during that period.
