Glaciers outside the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets are at present, despite their small volume (200,000 glaciers on Earth. A range of remote sensing and in situ observations of surface conditions and ice thickness will be employed as input and/or for model calibration. In a final experiment, the future glacier evolution will be simulated for a selection of glaciers and results will be upscaled to all glaciers worldwide to assess the 21st century sea level rise contribution.
