Glaciers are a very important component of Earth system. This study aimed to understand the field techniques involved in mass-balance measurement of glaciers. Mass balance characteristics of glaciers vary from one region to another depending on the weather patterns and the local climate. Hence, the glaciers from two different micro-climatic settings in Himalaya, eastern and western, are comparatively assessed here to understand the role of local level conditions in regulating the melting response of glaciers.
