Glacier Melt & Its Impacts

Glacier Melt & Its Impacts

One of the significant, negative impacts of climate change is the melting of glaciers around the globe. Glaciers are an important source of freshwater for many people, and increasing temperatures are causing glaciers to melt at unprecedented rates. While glacier melt is a global concern, anxieties are particularly high for the consequences in Asia and the glaciers of the Himalayas. Nearly half a billion people people live at the base of these mountains, and even more rely on the rivers and the lakes they feed.

These storms can strip canopies, snap and uproot trees, and submerge smaller ones via high storm surge. While these initial impacts are clearly destructive, there is evidence that hurricanes also provide benefits to mangroves forests.

Reforestation is the planting of trees in a designated area in an effort to substitute carbon dioxide for oxygen in our atmosphere. Reforestation was created in an effort to combat wildlife and natural disasters, but today is mainly used to fight climate change and deforestation. Sites where forests have been lost or destroyed are where most reforestation projects are located. The overall objective of the project can vary from economic interests, ecosystem services or to promote biodiversity.
