NSIDC Glaciers and Climate Change

National Snow and Ice Data Center

Here, you can explore a KML providing a rich geospatial presentation illustrating the changes in glaciers over the years. By providing documented photographic evidence, you can see first hand the changes that have taken place. Since glaciers can contribute to sea level rise, understanding the changes that have occurred over the years can provide us with a greater knowledge of the impacts we are having on our own planet with regards to climate change.
