The World Glacier Monitoring Service (WGMS; WDS Regular Member) has announced the publication of the second issue of the Global Glacier Change Bulletin series which provides an integrative assessment of worldwide and regional glacier changes at two-year intervals. It serves as an authoritative source of illustrated and commentated information on global glacier changes based on the latest observations from the scientific collaboration network of the WGMS.
