how many glaciers?

Bindschadler, Robert A. (GSFC-614.0)[EMERITUS]

Cryolisters,

 

(I had a great response to my last query, so I’m back again…)

 

Anyone know of a citable source for the number of glaciers in the world?  I thought (maybe wrongly since I can’t find my source) that the number was about 50,000, but I’m editing some input to a report that states 200,000.

 

Thanks in advance for any responses,

Bob
