Melting Glaciers

Facts About Glaciers

Statistics and information to give the real feel of the significance of the glaciers.

Are Glaciers Growing Or Retreating?

Although Glaciologists measure year-to-year changes in glacier activity, it is the long term changes which provide the basis for making any strong claim on what is happening. It is possible to confuse these issues by cherry picking individual glac...

What Is A Glacier?

It is not just ice!

Glaciers At Risk

Simulations suggest that at a 4°C rise in temperature would cause nearly all of the world's glaciers to melt.

Glaciers Before And After

Images from in and around Glacier National Park, Montana reveal dramatic melting over the years.

Ground Zero Of Global Climate Change

As the ice sheets slowly thaw, water pours into the sea — 130 billion tons of ice per year for the past decade, according to NASA satellite calculations. That's the weight of more than 356,000 Empire State Buildings, enough ice melt to fill more t...

Melting Glaciers Raise Sea Level

Anthropogenic climate change leads to melting glaciers and rising sea level. Between 1902 and 2009, melting glaciers contributed 11 cm to sea level rise. They were therefore the most important cause of sea level rise.

Early Warning Signs Of Global Warming

The volume of ice in a glacier and correspondingly its surface area, thickness, and length is determined by the balance between inputs (accumulation of snow and ice) and outputs (melting and calving). As climate changes, the balance between inputs...

Glaciers Melt Faster Than Ever

The World Glacier Monitoring Service, domiciled at the University of Zurich, has compiled worldwide data on glacier changes for more than 120 years. In this study, observations of the first decade of the 21st century (2001-2010) were compared to a...

Sea Level Rise

Core samples, tide gauge readings, and, most recently, satellite measurements tell us that over the past century, the Global Mean Sea Level (GMSL) has risen by 4 to 8 inches. However, the annual rate of rise over the past 20 years has been 0.13 in...

Time-Lapse Proof Of Extreme Ice Loss

TED talk on glaciers melt. Explained here with the time-lapse camera recording.

Rising Sea Levels Could Cause Staggering Damage To These Cities

Sea levels may rise by about one meter by 2100 if carbon emissions continue unchecked, according to a recent survey of experts, and the effects on coastal cities could be devastating.

Must See Video Of Greenland Melting

A bunch of scientist decided to measure the amount of ice that melts and flows out from the glaciers in Greenland.

Thanks to humans, the source of over 60% of fresh water on earth is melting and going into sea, causing an alarm for a much bigger trouble.
