The article summarises results of detailed studies of 1999-2005 for a group of glacial lakes actively developing by the edge of the Bashkara Glacier in Central Caucasus, Russia. We present the analysis of changes in lake depths, levels and volumes. Possible glacial lake outburst flood/debris flow scenarios are described and assessed.
