The glaciers on the Rwenzori Mountains, in the East of Africa could disappear in just two decades! You can once again blame climate change for this. Africans will soon no longer witness the only four tropical ice fields that exist outside the Andes.
It is the first survey of glaciers in a decade, in the Rwenzori Mountains, East Africa – called the ‘Mountains of the Moon’.
Over the last four decades, air temperature there has increased contributing to a substantial reduction in glacial cover, according to a British-Ugandan team. Want to read the details of this work? You will get it in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.
