This slide show follows a snowflake through its life in a glacier. The path of the ice crystal is traced from its incorporation in the zone of accumulation, through the zone of ablation to its final departure, whether being calved as an iceberg or melting or sublimated. There is also information on the speed of the glacier and the difference between a cold and a warm glacier. Full description.

In this activity, students will explore the characteristics of ice and explain the influencing factors by using Internet connections to polar field experiences, making their own ice cores and taking a field trip for obtaining a local ice core. The students will practice scientific journaling to document their observations. They will assemble their findings, develop a poster of their ice core and explain ... Full description.

This activity helps students to understand the many roles that polar sea ice plays in the systems that maintain our planet, by first helping them to understand the process of the formation of ice in oceanic regimes. Students will use an inquiry based lab experience relating salt content to the ability of water to freeze in order to begin this study. Specifically, they will design an experiment to ...

At this site students will discover that more than any other ice sheet, the West Antarctic Ice Sheet has the greatest potential to raise sea levels all over the world. They will also learn how scientists are studying it, both in the field and back in the laboratory. This is an in-depth profile of a glaciologist who studies the ice streams of this ice sheet, which flow to the Southern Ocean. In the ... Full description.

This atlas contains Landsat images, aerial photographs, selected maps, and other data, which provide a baseline look (from the mid-1970's) at glaciation in Canada, the conterminous United States, and Mexico. The Landsat false-color imagery includes ice fields, outlet glaciers, valley glaciers, and cirque glaciers, as well as ice caps. Ice features are grouped by location and a full description is ...

The National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) has made a select set of images viewable through the popular interactive desktop application, Google Earth. Users can choose from a set of data-based images (KMZ and KML files) and display them on a virtual globe. Featured datasets include changes in glaciers, the Larsen B ice shelf, and Arctic sea ice extent from 1979-2006, breakup of the Larsen B ice ... Full description.

NSIDC houses over 15,000 photographic prints of glaciers, taken both from the air and from the ground. These photographs constitute an important historical record, as well as a data collection of interest to those studying the response of glaciers to climate change. More than 3,000 glacier photos are online, and most of these glaciers are in the Rocky Mountains, the Pacific Northwest, and Alaska. ... Full description.
