Global Resources for Schools: GlacierWorks

GlacierWorks imageOn the GlacierWorks website, students can explore the Himalayan glaciers in incredible detail, see how they are being impacted by climate change, and trace how they provide fresh water for almost every major river system of Asia.

The site features interactive maps, images taken by early mountaineers, and astonishing gigapixel photographic images that allow students to virtually soar thousands of feet above a glacier and view it in its entirety or dip down to the ground and explore pebbles in the ice.
