This supporting information includes a note on the research consensus on the triggering of Glacier Lake Outburst Floods (GLOFS; Text S1). We provide a description of those lakes which were affected by the exceptional 1970 earthquake (Text S2 and Figure S1). Finally we provide a geological map for the region in which the six 1970 GLOFs occurred (Figure S2) and provide annotations on Google Earth images showing potential routes for mass movement triggering of GLOFs (Figures S3-S4).
