Understanding glacial processes is key to assessing the sensitivity of glacier systems to changing climate. Glaciers are monitored on different spatio-temporal scales, from extensive seasonal mass balance studies at selected glaciers to multi-decadal repeat inventories over entire mountain ranges. Internationally coordinated glacier monitoring has been coordinated for more than a century by the World Glacier Monitoring Service and its predecessor organizations and aims at combining in-situ measurement with remotely sensed data, and local process understanding with global coverage.
