A classroom/laboratory activity to learn about glacial retreat and to predict the complete melting of a glacier (specifically, for an example in Glacier National Park).
A reading that introduces the topic of glaciers and their formation.
|This audio podcast discusses how glaciers in the Yukon are responding to climate change. It focuses on changes in the physical characteristics of these glaciers and several methods used by glaciologists to track changes due to climate and weather.|
As a High School or Undergraduate Geography or Earth Sciences teacher, you can use this set of computer-based tools to teach about landforms. This lesson plan focuses on glaciers, glacier lakes and climate change induced glacier lake outburst floods (GLOFs).
As a high school or undergraduate Geography or Earth Sciences teacher, you can use this set of computer-based tools to help you in teaching about glaciers, the cryosphere, and related topics such as the impact of temperature and precipitation on glacial mass, glacial budgets, and glacial advance and retreat.
