Glacial lake outburst floods database

Welcome to the website devoted to glacial lake outburst floods

The Glacial Lake Outburst Floods Database has been created under the IPL project No.179 in the frame of ICL International Consortium on Landslides. Main purpose of this project is to create broadly available overview of GLOFs, which occured since the „Little Ice Age“ and provide basic information about them. Glacial Lake Outburst Floods (GLOFs) have been studied in various regions worldwide, but no overall summary of these events has been done yet.
