Here’s a link to an article in the Journal of Glaciology about the disintegration of two glaciers.

A glacier near Lake Aru in western Tibet collapsed on 17 July 2016, killing 9 people when more than 70 million cubic kilometres of ice tumbled down a mountain valley, spreading over a distance of 6 kilometres onto the lowland below.  On 21 September 2016 the neighbouring glacier to the southeast collapsed, with no loss of life.  The two collapses are virtually unprecedented, experts say.
