1976). Glaciers in the Hidden Valley have shown considerable retreat during the period 1974–1994 (Fujii et al. 1996). 7 shows the evolution of the Rikha Samba Glacier from 1974 to 2010. It clearly shows the depletion of the snout of the glacier. The rate at which Himalayan glaciers are shrinking generally remains poorly constrained because ground-based observations are limited by the high altitude and remoteness of the region. Fujita and Nuimura (2011) looked at the mass wastage of the Himalayan glaciers and they selected three benchmark glaciers in the Nepal Himalayas on which observations have been made since the 1970s.

These conclusions apply to observed temperature change over Asia and the Pacific. It can also be concluded that anthropogenic forcing has contributed to widespread glacier retreat during the twentieth century in Central Asia, the Himalayan plateau and the Southern Alps of New Zealand. A range of observational evidence indicates that temperature extremes are changing. An anthropogenic influence on warm and cold nights is consistent with that expected from global warming, as is the increase in high intensity rainfall events.
