Seismic observations, numerical modeling, and geomorphic analysis of a glacier lake outburst flood in the Himalayas

Glacial lake outburst floods (GLOFs) are a substantial hazard for downstream communities in vulnerable regions, yet unpredictable triggers and remote source locations make GLOF dynamics difficult to measure and quantify. Here, we revisit a …

Massive collapse of two glaciers in western Tibet in 2016 after surge-like instability

Two catastrophic glacier collapse events in western Tibet in 2016 were caused by a convergence of weather and glacier-bed conditions, according to an analysis of observations and modelling.
