Hi Rajesh ,
A very trivial question , Will sustained snowing result in recharging glaciers. I am still wondering on the final word on glaciers receding,

Is this also a cyclical trend ?

Ananth, sorry for the delayed reply.
Glaciers form high in mountain valleys and in polar regions where the snow falls but never melts. The heavy snow crushes the layers below and forms a mountain of ice. Sure fresh snow is good addition, but it takes many years before the lower layer is actually crushed.
But I am no expert on Glaciers, and have a very limited kowledge of this topic.
