Divine grant enough for New Zealanders 40 years, New Zealand: A glacier has melted enough for 40 years to drink its people ، A research institute in New Zealand said yesterday that it believes that a glacier in the country has lost a great deal of ice over three years, in a way that provides drinking water for all New Zealanders for 40 years. The National Institute for Water and Atmospheric Research said in a statement that scientists estimate that B river .

A research institute in New Zealand said yesterday that it believes that a glacier in the country has lost a great deal of ice over three years, providing drinking water for all New Zealanders for 40 years.

The National Institute for Water and Atmospheric Research said in a statement that scientists estimate that the Brewster Glacier, in the South Island region, lost 13 million cubic meters of ice between 2016 and 2019.

This equals 15.9 trillion liters of water, and the institute believes that this amount is equivalent to what a population the size of New Zealand's residents will drink in 40 years.

Annually, the institute's scientists survey the ice line at the end of the summer for more than 50 glaciers in New Zealand.

Climate scientist Andrew Lowry said that he found more snow in glaciers this year, compared to the previous two years, but he warned that this might not be a kind of recovery.

He added that it would take between 20 and 30 years, like this, "to start even looking at whether that last damage could be fixed to any degree."

Lori said that the damage caused to some small glaciers between 2018 and 2019 put them on the verge of fading.

He explained that about 30% of the volume of ice in the Southern Alps, equivalent to 15.9 trillion liters of water, has been lost since the annual observation began in the 1970s.
