A video and visualization to learn about glacier modeling and the prediction of the future of glaciers by using mathematical models.
Students will understand how mathematicians and glaciologists collaborate to design glacier models. They will also use an interactive visualization to observe the possible effects of different climatic changes on a glacier in the European Alps.
Use this tool to help students find answers to:
- What is the relationship between climate and the cryosphere?
- Discuss how climate change may affect glaciers in the European Alps.
