Brief communication: Do 1.0, 1.5, or 2.0 °C matter for the future evolution of Alpine glaciers?
15 June 2021
Recently, discussions have focused on the difference in limiting the increase in global average temperatures to below 1.0, 1.5, or 2.0 °C compared to preindustrial levels. Here, the authors assess the impacts that such different scenarios would have on both the future evolution of glaciers in the European Alps and the water resources they provide. Their results show that the different temperature targets have important implications for the changes predicted until 2100.
