Tracking Glacial Clues for Climate Change (Interactive)
In this interactive feature produced by ThinkTV, explore an alpine glacier to learn about melting, evaporation, sublimation, calving, and accumulation. Together these processes determine whether a glacier is growing or shrinking—scientists compare the annual accumulation of ice and snow to the annual loss of ice and snow to calculate any changes in the glacier’s mass balance. These measurements help scientists determine if a glacier is shrinking, and how the loss of mass may be relat
