INDIAN GLACIER EXPERTS: SATELLITE FINDINGS NO SUPRISE

Vijay Kumar Raina, Ex. Deputy Director General, Geological Survey of India, author of 2010 MoEF Discussion Paper, “Himalayan Glaciers - State-of-Art Review of Glacial Studies, Glacial Retreat and Climate Change”, the first comprehensive study on the region: "Claims of global warming causing glacial melt in the Himalayas are based on wrong assumptions.“ Hindustan Times, February 11, 2007

The Times (2007): "Raina told the Hindustan Times that out of 9,575 glaciers in India, till date, research has been conducted only on about 50. Nearly 200 years of data has shown that nothing abnormal has occurred in any of these glaciers. … The issue of glacial retreat is being sensationalized by a few individuals, … Raina claimed."

Dr. R.K. Ganjoo, Director, Regional Centre for Field Operations and Research on Himalayan Glaciology maintains (2007) that nothing abnormal has been found in any of the Himalayan glaciers studied so far by him.

B. D. Acharya said (2007) that the Department of Science and Technology (DST), New Delhi had been coordinating a programme on glaciers over the last 20 years, but the impacts of global warming on glaciers were still inconclusive.
