The World Glacier Monitoring Service (WGMS) compiles and disseminates standardized data on glacier fluctuations for more than a century. To this end, the WGMS annually collects glacier data through its scientific collaboration network that is active in more than 40 countries from Afghanistan to Uzbekistan. The national correspondents coordinate the glacier monitoring in their respective country.
