Can not find much of anything in the IPCC physical science basis concerning
the state of Himalayan glaciers.
No estimate given for current or historical surface area or volume.
Likewise, there are no projections given for the Himalayan glaciers.

One would think that the Indians themselves would have a good idea
on the changes going on with the Himalayans glaciers. However, even
their very own report does not make an attempt to document the area
or volume of the Himalayan glaciers.

We have about 30 year of detailed area for artic sea ice. and yet nothing
comparable for the Himalayans.
