Glacial lakes are resulted from glacial activities and the increasing water convergence in the front or on the side of glaciers caused by the retreat of glaciers. Global warming results in the frequency increasing and the effect aggravating of the glacial disasters caused by the glacial lakes outburst flood and the glacial mudslide. In this paper, the authors discussed surrounding glacial break conditions, stability evaluation, outburst flood model and other relevent aspects, made a systematic summary of the current situation and progress in the studies on glacial lakes, especially in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, and predicted the trend of glacial lakes researches in the future.
