Article
Based on complex analysis of the latest data, new conclusions have been reached about the features and causes of glacial disasters.
Chapter
Contemporary conditions and dynamics of glaciers in mountain areas of Russia have been evaluated based on satellite imagery interpretations and field surveys, analysis of the data of the Glacier Inventory of the USSR, topographic maps and aerial photographs, as well as published research papers. Glacier systems in Russia have been studied unevenly...

Changes of the glacier areas were analyzed. Rates of the area reduction of glaciers and glacier systems were compared over the course of the past 160 years as well as during shorter time intervals for the same period. On average for the whole period, the glacier areas decreased by a few tenths of a percent from the original in a year. Note, that th...

Results of the work done on creating the digital glaciological atlas are discussed. The prerequisites for and the techniques of the Atlas preparation together with its structure, content, and the ways of the use are presented.

The history of studies of ten mountain glacier systems in Russian Subarctic is analyzed in the paper (Fig. 1). The intensity of these systems reduction and the vertical extent of glaciers during last 150 and 50 years are compared with the climate warming in this part of Russia, the map of accumulation–ablation on glaciers of this region is given (F...
Article
This particle is devoted to the problem of developing a glaciological geographic information system. The process of transition from systems atlas mapping to geoinformational methods for the modeling of geographical features and phenomena is examined. It is proposed that the 'World Atlas of Snow and Ice Resources' be used as a model of the structure...
Article
The article devoted to a problem of glaciological GIS development. Process of transition from a system atlas mapping to geoinformation methods of geographical objects and phenomena modeling is considered. In is offered to use the Wold Atlas of Snow and Ice Resources as image or model of geoinformation system structure. The detabase of projected GIS...
Article
The areas and volumes (in water equivalent) of seasonal snow cover in 10 sublatitudinal glaciological zones have been calculated from the maps of snow and ice storage in the World Atlas of Snow and Ice Resources. These zones are combined into five glaciological belts, subdivided by sublongitudinal boundaries into 36 glaciological provinces (Figs. 1...
Article
As a result of investigating special glacial maps, the conclusion is made that accumulation conditions prevail over the ablation conditions in their impact on glacier distribution and dynamics of two regional glacial systems of the temperate climatic belt.
Article
Snow cover is an important factor governing the global distribution of moisture. It stores water seasonally, thus conserving water on continents in a manner that differs considerably from the snow-free summer conditions. Accumulation of snow and subsequent liberation of water result in its distribution among oceans on a global scale. Until recently...

... The area of some glaciers was decreasing not by a few tenths of a percent but by a few percent per year during that period. Similar data are available for a number of glaciers in different regions of Russia: the Caucasus (Kotlyakov et al. 2017;Zolotarev and Kharkovets 2012), the Altai (Kotlyakov et al. 2015), the Eastern Sayan (Suvorov and Kitov 2017), the Polar Urals (Ivanov 2013;Kotlyakov et al. 2015), the Kuznetsk Alatau , the Baikal ridge, the Kodar ridge (Osipov and Osipova 2015), and the Kamchatka . ...
... Part of the research studied glacier changes in the Altai Mountains by country (Shi et al., 2010;Wang et al., 2013;Kamp and Pan, 2015), and some articles reported glacier changes by region (Wang et al., 2011a;Lv et al., 2012). The majority of existing research focused on glaciers in Katun (Narozhniy and Zemtsov, 2011;Kotlyakov et al., 2014), Turgen (Lehmkuhl, 1999;Tsutomu and Gombo, 2007;Lehmkuhl, 2012;Kamp et al., 2013), Tavan Bogd (Revyakin, 1986;Krumwiede et al., 2014;Ganyushkin et al., 2018), North Chuya (Narozhniy and Zemtsov, 2011;Kotlyakov et al., 2014), and Mongolia Altai (Kamp and Pan, 2015). The published research about glacier changes in the Altai Mountains can be seen in Supplementary Table S1 and Supplementary Table S2. ...
... The TP is characterized by extensive snow cover, glaciers, permafrost, and mountain lakes. About 67% of the plateau is covered by permafrost [Zhou et al., 2000], and the glacier area (about 91,822 km 2 ) [Kotlyakov et al., 2012] over the TP is the third largest on the earth, after the Arctic/Greenland and Antarctic regions (1.7 Â 10 6 -12.3 Â 10 6 km 2 ) [Lemke et al., 2007]. As a unique geological and geographical unit, the TP exerts a profound influence on the East Asian and global climate through mechanical and thermal forcing mechanisms [Kutzbach et al., 1993;Yanai et al., 1992;Zheng and Li, 1999]. ...
... The glacial systems that were discovered after the compilation of the GIU were not included in these calculations. Three of these systems are located in the subarctic latitudes, in the Chukotka Highlands, the Kolyma Highlands, and the northeastern part of the Koryak Highlands (Sedov 1998(Sedov , 1992(Sedov , 1995(Sedov , 1996(Sedov , 1997a(Sedov , b, 2001Kotlyakov et al. 2011;Chernova et al. 2011). Two other systems belong to the temperate zone. ...
