Extended Data Fig. 1: Global glaciers, increasing extreme mass-loss years in recent decades, and study area.

From: Anthropogenic warming forces extreme annual glacier mass loss

Extended Data Fig. 1

Full map: All global glaciers53 (black), including all glaciers with >30 years of mass-balance measurements1 (open black circles). Each colored square represents one extreme mass-loss year, with the color showing the timing, by decade. Extreme mass-loss years are defined as the 90th percentile of negative mass balances for each individual glacier. Inset: Glaciers in the Southern Alps of New Zealand53 (black), including the subset of glaciers used in this study (blue).
