The Canadian Glacier Inventory Project is an effort being developed by a student in the School of Geography and Earth Sciences at McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

The North Cascade Glacier Climate Project has observed glaciers in the North Cascades of Washington for 20 years. Annual balance is measured on 10 glaciers, and bi-annual terminus surveys are completed on 47 glaciers to determine the response of these glaciers to climate change.

The Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate's Svartisen Subglacial Laboratory supports a variety of projects for measuring subglacial parameters and performing experiments on the ice.

Program in Arctic Regional Climate Assessment (PARCA), a NASA project at the University of Colorado at Boulder to assess the application of airborne laser altimetry to measurements of ice-sheet thickness changes, with the primary goal of measuring and understanding the mass balance of the Greenland ice sheet. explains the science of Antarctic glaciology.
