How is black soot threatening glaciers?

    Because researchers claim that black soot accelerates glacier melt. In the case of the Himalayan glacier melt, scientist give two reasons for why the soot threatens the glaciers, one being that by falling directly on the glaciers the soot absorbs the sunlight and brings heat to the ice surface. It should be noted that researchers have yet to directly prove that black soot is speeding up the melting of glaciers.
