As global climate change influences on earth environment and human life deeply and widely in the recent decades,the influence of the climate change is in spotlight.The climate change has changed the glacier existence,too.The response of the glacier to the global climate change is a hotspot of the international glaciological research nowadays.China is one of the mid-latitude countries,where glaciers are most widely distributed in the world,and the glacier is such important water resources in arid western regions of China that the glacial changes impact the environment profoundly.The glacier system model,based on the glacier system theory,is a hydrological evaluation model dealing with glaciers change.In the light of the method of the system theory,the prediction deals with macro-scale glaciers change instead of the individual simulation.The model uses the now available glacier data efficiently and predicts the tendency of the glacier response wholly.Taking the Jinsha River Drainage's glaciers system as an example,according to the natural environment characteristics, the drainage glacier system was divided into the source regional glaciers system and outer-source regional glacier system.Based on the glacier system model,the responses were predicted of the glacier system to the global climate change under different climate change scenarios.The sample confirms excellent correctness and feasibility of the glacier system model.The results of model research will play an active role to cope with the influences the global change maybe result in.
