Additional Data

In Russia, glaciers can be found all over the country covering more than 53,000 km²—from the Altai mountain region glaciers and the Kamchatka Peninsula, to the Arctic ice caps on islands in the Kara and the Barents Sea. Compared to historical records, the rate of ice mass loss in the Russian Arctic has nearly doubled over the last decade. About 1030 glaciers with a total area of 805 km² have been recorded in the Altai Region. As a whole, glacial retreat in Central Asia may have strong impacts on the availability and sustainability of the region’s water resources.
