125 years of internationally coordinated glacier monitoring

World Glacier Monitoring Service
Dear members of the Cryolist,

Glacier monitoring has been internationally coordinated since the
foundation of the “Commission Internationale des Glaciers” in 1894 [1].
Today, this task is continued by the scientific collaboration network of
the World Glacier Monitoring Service (WGMS) and its partner
organizations [2].

Together with IACS, we will celebrate the 125 years jubilee with a
session dedicated to “Aspects of the history of cryospheric sciences”
during the IUGG General Assembly [3] in Montréal, Canada, as well as
with our regular sessions on “Glacier monitoring from in-situ and
remotely sensed observations” at EGU [4], IUGG [3] and AGU. At all these
occasions, we welcome your contributions!

In addition, we will reflect achievements and future challenges in
glacier monitoring with our national correspondents and international
partner organizations at three regional meetings [5].

We thank our national correspondents and all principal investigators for
the great collaboration over the past years and decades and are looking
forward to continuing serving the community with standardized data on
glacier changes from around the world. The latest results are available
from our website [6, 7] and will be published in the next issue of the
Global Glacier Change Bulletin [8].

Sincerely yours

Michael Zemp, on behalf of the WGMS
