The world’s glaciers may contain less water than thought, and fresh water supplies may peak sooner than expected, a new US study has found.According to the report, the findings of the new study suggest that meltwater from glaciers is used by millions of people around the world for drinking, irrigation and living, and that fresh water supplies will peak more quickly are worrisome.With 11 per cent fewer glaciers worldwide than previously thought, the study suggests that global warming will cause ice to melt at a faster rate.Global sea levels could rise by up to 10 inches as the glaciers melt, according to the study.At present, North America, Europe, New Zealand and other places are facing the threat of melting ice.Overseas network copyright works, unauthorized reprint is strictly prohibited.
