In 1984 the Pyrenees mountains still had 41 glaciers with a total surface area of 8.10 square kilometers. Recession is rapid, and only very small remnant glaciers, mostly in northern or northeasten orientation, remain. These photo comparisons document the rapid disappearance of ice in the Pyrenees.
