Conference paper


The most general definition of climate change is a change in the statistical properties of the climate system when considered over periods of decades or longer, regardless of cause. However this change could be very different from one region to another. Glaciers are considered among the most sensitive indicators of climate change, advancing when climate cools and retreating when climate warms.
