Available data corresponding to Iran’s glaciers dates back to the late thirties and early seventies. This data are mainly the result of a handful foreign researchers and the studies of Vaziri conducted in years between 1985 and 2000. Although those research studies can give valuable information regarding glaciers activities in the past, but they were not conducted in a systematic and continuous manner. Therefore, only some preliminary conclusions can be made regarding to the detection of glacial regions along with the basic characteristics of them. Considering the importance of glaciers and the staggering rate of their shrinkage, the Ministry of Energy in Iran has defined a national project regarding the assessment of glaciers and assigned its responsibility to the Water Research Institute (WRI).
