Today, about 3000 glaciers straddle the Equator in Latin America, East Africa, and Indonesia. Dr. Heïdi Sevestre will present her ongoing project, “The Last Tropical Glaciers,” initiated in 2019 in Colombia. Together with local glaciologist Jorge Luis Leballos and citizen science project Cumbres Blancas Colombia, they conducted several field campaigns to support the monitoring of the small tropical glaciers in the country and raise awareness of these rapidly disappearing glaciers all the way to the desk of decision makers.
