Protocol - What is the evidence about glacier melt across the Himalayas?

Abstract

This is the protocol for a systematic review which will consider the evidence about glacier melt across the Himalayas. It will also consider the questions:

  • Are glaciers advancing or retreating, and are there regional differences?
  • Is the rate of glacial melt increasing across the region?
  • In what areas of research is evidence lacking and how best could future work ensure a more complete evidence base is developed?

The protocol provides background information and details of the methods to be used.
