Temperatures and humidity are likely to continue to rise throughout this century, causing glaciers to retreat and desertification to spread, according to the report published by the Chinese Academy of Sciences' Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research.

Glacier retreat could disrupt water supply to several of Asia's main rivers that originate from the plateau, including China's Yellow and Yangtze, India's Brahmaputra, and the Mekong and Salween in Southeast Asia. In May, Chinese scientists said Tibetan glaciers had shrunk 15 percent - around 8, square km 3, square miles - over the past 30 years.

The mandible was discovered by a local monk in and donated to Lanzhou University. Notify me of new comments via email. The molecules in the specimen were especially telling. We are convinced that this museum, intended to the largest audience, will be an asset for the city of Lhasa.

The scientists urged the government to work to reduce human impact on the region's fragile environment. Sign in. See Subscription Options. Get smart.
