In this chapter, users take the role of students from a small town in Colorado, who team up with students from the town of Churchill, Manitoba, to explore changing sea ice conditions in the Arctic. Together they examine an animation that shows 30 years of satellite images to see how the extent of sea ice in the Arctic has diminished over time. The chapter storyline is built around the real-life case ... Full description.

In this chapter, using My World GIS, users explore data that characterize the dynamic Greenland Ice Sheet. By examining photographs, map views, and tabular data, users gain an understanding of how and why scientists are monitoring the ice sheet and what they are finding. Users explore map layers that represent ice sheet thickness, weather station locations, and annual melt extents of the ice sheet. ... Full description.

This lithograph shows the break-off of a large iceberg from the Pine Island Glacier in West Antarctica. This event occurred between November 4th and 12th, 2001, and provides powerful evidence of rapid changes underway in this area of Antarctica. The three images presented were acquired by the vertical-viewing (nadir) camera of the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) instrument aboard NASA's ... Full description.

This 5-minute animation portrays fluctuations in the cryosphere through observations collected from a variety of satellite-based sensors. The cryosphere consists of those parts of the Earth's surface where water is found in solid form, including areas of snow, sea ice, glaciers, permafrost, ice sheets, and icebergs. In these regions, surface temperatures remain below freezing for a portion of each ... Full description.

This two-part activity provides information on seasonal changes in the mass balance of the Antarctic Ice Sheet. In Part 1, students use an atlas and satellite imagery to examine the geography of the region and identify seasonal changes in the boundaries of the ice sheet. In Part 2, they will collect a series of images of the Antarctic ice sheet covering a period of several years, draw the boundaries ... Full description.

This activity's storyline is built around the real-life case study of Dr. Walt Meier, a Sea Ice Scientist from Boulder, Colorado. In the fictional story, the students of Churchill become concerned about wildlife in their region because polar bears have become a nuisance in the town. According to the local elders, the sea ice patterns have changed. The students turn to Dr. Meier for his expertise in ... Full description.

In this problem set, learners will analyze a true-color satellite image of an Icelandic glacier that has been retreating since 1973. They will determine the scale of the image to take measurements of the retreat, such as volume of ice lost. Answer key is provided. This is part of Earth Math: A Brief Mathematical Guide to Earth Science and Climate Change. Full description.
