As reported a group of Chinese scientists led by Yao Tandun from the Institute of Tibetan Studies, the area of the Tibetan glaciers shrinking faster, than previously thought. Chinese scientists obtained data contradict recently published data from another group of climate scientists, which reported no decrease in the size of glaciers on the basis of satellite images obtained by GRACE project in the study of the mountain system Korakorum. However, Chinese scientists argue, that the Tibetan glaciers are melting faster than expected, and the glaciers of the Pamir and Korakoruma really almost do not change in size because of the changed nature of wind power, and in this region of the Earth, since the formation of glaciers of the Pamir and Korakoruma depend primarily all of the westerly winds, that have consistently low temperature, and the Himalayan snow-fed, brought by the monsoons, so even a small increase in temperature leads to a decrease in the accumulation of ice in Tibet.
