This article is a Why Files short piece on the melting of tropical glaciers. Geologist Lonnie Thompson has reported that ice in tropical regions is melting fast, and glaciers are retreating at an accelerating rate. In 2000, Thompson found that the icecap on Kilimanjaro in East Africa had lost 82 percent of its area in 88 years. Researchers found similar results for glaciers in the Andes Mountains ...

The Great Ice Age, a recent chapter in the Earth's history, was a period of recurring widespread glaciations. Mountain glaciers formed on all continents, the ice caps of Antarctica and Greenland were more extensive and thicker than today, and vast glaciers, in places as much as several thousand feet thick, spread across North America and Eurasia. This ice age, the most recent in the history of the ... Full description.

Geologists are interested in Cape Cod, Massachusetts because it formed by glaciers very recently in terms of geologic time, and because of the ever-changing shore as the Cape adjusts to the rising sea. This United States Geological Survey (USGS) report covers the geologic history of the Cape, which includes glacial retreat, fossils, erosion, and the future of this area. Selected readings are given ... Full description.
