“Scientists have found three glaciers in Toyama Prefecture, the first glaciers recognized in Japan and the southernmost in East Asia,” says this article by Minolru Matsutani.
“Researchers from the Tateyama Caldera Sabo Museum discovered the three slow-moving chunks of ice in the Hida Mountain Range, otherwise known as the Northern Alps.”
“A glacier is defined as a large mass of ice that over many years “flows” owing to its great weight, according to the Japanese Society of Snow and Ice.”
Using GPS, the team confirmed that the masses of ice – 27 to 30 meters deep and 400 to 1,200 meters long – are moving between 10 and 30 cm a month.
