Glaciers in Switzerland have lost only a tenth of their size in the past five years, an unprecedented melting rate in more than a century of observations, as ice is melting record-breaking.

According to the British Daily Mail, the Cryospheric Commission of the Swiss Academy of Sciences has reported record solubility levels this year based on measurements of 20 glaciers.

Snow cover on glaciers was about 20 to 40 percent higher than normal in April and May this year, with a depth measuring up to six meters in some places until late June.

The volume of melting ice on Swiss glaciers was equivalent to the country’s total annual consumption of drinking water, which led to the rapid disappearance of the dense ice layer and continued strong melting in early September.

The melting represents an unprecedented rate of decline in the time series spanning more than a century, the report said, less than a month after the disappearance of the Pizol glacier, one of more than 500 glaciers disappearing from the Swiss Alps since the turn of the 20th century.

More than 90 percent of the nearly 4,000 glaciers spread across the Alps could disappear by the end of this century if greenhouse gas emissions are not reduced, according to a recent study by the ETH Institute in Zurich.
