Most of us will see less snow over the coming years - but polar and high-altitude regions will get more, a new climate model from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicts.
Massive earthquakes have left clear ground scars in the central Himalayas, raising concerns that more could be on the way - in a region that has a population density similar to that of New York City.
New seismic observations indicate that the Himalayas and Pacific Northwest may be primed for major earthquakes.
Glaciers in the eastern and central regions of the Himalayas are retreating at an ever-increasing pace, while those in the western Himalayas may even be growing.
Himalayan glaciers aren't shrinking as fast as thought - indeed, some are actually growing.
While glaciers globally are shedding billions of tons of ice each year, the Himalayas aren't, a study shows.
It's natural, perhaps, to associate solar power with the hot places of the world.
