Glaciers and water supply in Eastern Europe

All that geog-geog thing was no more at the end of Secondary 2 because I pursued other branches of humanities and sciences. Brief discussions about Geography in university also centered around human geog rather than physical geog.

But it was an eye opener, to observe the glaciers on mountains when travelling across European terrain on their pan-continental train network. The mountains and their glaciers are the Europeans’, as well as all the world’s people’s, natural renewable water source. It is on a scale that man cannot make, and that man cannot provide to others for free.

Against a backdrop of abnormal weather events, I wonder if the glaciers formed are supposed to cover the full surface of the mountains. In the following photo, rocky mountains extend upwards just shy of the tips where the glaciers have formed.
