  15. 15. The Western Kanas Glacier in Altai: 1905 - 2001• Since 1905 the glacier has shrunk in length by 1.5 – 2.0 km, and the elevation of tongue has risen by over 100m.• The rate of retreat is of the W. Kanas glacier is estimated to be 15-20 m per year after N.N. Mikhailov and O.V. Ostanin
  16. 16. Glacier ChangesIn instrumental period of measures (middle of XIX Century):Surface of minor glaciers decreased on 20-40% (some – disappeared)Surface of big glaciers decreased on 8-20 % (Galakhov, Muhametov)The lengths of glaciers decreased on 1000-1500 m (In general)Glacier‟s front uplifted from 50-100 m (Mongolian Altai) up to 150-170 m(South Altai)Speed of glacier‟s retreating: from 8-10 m/year up to 12 m/year
  17. 17. The Grand Challenges in Research in the Center of Asia• Transdisciplinary approach in understanding tendencies of changes and development scenarios• Adapting monitoring addressed on sustainable development and conservation of biological and cultural diversity• Integration scientific, traditional and “bureaucratic” knowledge systems in sustainable development strategies, human actions and policy-making• Responses on Global Changes• Efficient methods and mechanisms for practical implementation of scientific findings in practice
