   Description: 
      Abstract:
         The National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) in Boulder, Colorado houses many 
         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. NSIDC is partnering with the NOAA Climate Database Modernization 
         Program (CDMP) and the National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) to digitize 
         selected photographs and make them available through a searchable interface. 
         To date, more than 12,000 photographs have been digitized and comprise the 
         Glacier Photograph Collection. Most of the photographs are of glaciers in the 
         Rocky Mountains, the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, and Greenland. However, the 
         collection does include a smaller number of photos of glaciers in Europe and 
         South America. In March 2006, we began our special collection of Repeat 
         Photography of Glaciers. Updates to the Glacier Photograph Collection are 
         ongoing, and the photos are available online via a searchable interface.
