Previous studies show that there are four surge-type glaciers on the Anyemaqen Mountain, and the surges of Xiaomagou Glacier on the west slope have caused four glacier collapse disasters. This work studied the distribution, dates of the occurrence, durations and repeating cycles of glacier surges on Anyemaqen Mountain by analyzing a vast amount of satellite images including Landsat images since 1977 and Sentinel-2 images since 2015, and taking the changes on the horizontal position of glacier termini and typical surface features as the reference. The results show that there are totally eleven surge-type glaciers (including the branches of several glaciers) on Anyemaqen Mountain, accounting for approximately 10% and 66% of the total number and area of glaciers in this region in 2022. The results also revealed that totally seventeen glacier surge events have occurred in this region since 1986, of which the surges of Qushen’an No. 22 and Qiemuqu No. 23 Glaciers are still in progress. The frequent surges of Xiaomagou Glacier since 2000 have caused five glacier collapse disasters with different extents, in which the 2021’s surge and collapse were not reported before. Furthermore, there are seven glaciers are suspected to have been also surged, which show slight advances in some periods after 1986, and accounting for about 6% and 13% of the total glaciers number and area of in 2022. The results also indicate that the glacier surges on Anyemaqen Mountain are primarily in slow manner, and mostly have >50 years surge cycles. The surge behaviors of Weigeledangxiong and Halong Glaciers have been changed under the climate change since 1990, represented by the decreased surge extents and speeds. Meanwhile, the large area of ice avalanches on the steep back wall of several glaciers caused by climate warming may increase the instability of those glaciers. The warming climate may also cause the declined stability of Maqen Kangri Icecap, which may in turn cause some changes in the surges and collapses of its outlet glaciers like Xiaomagou Glacier and Weigeledangxiong Glacier.
