NOAA@NSIDC Added A Collection of 1200 Glaciers to the Glacier Photograph Collection

NOAA@NSIDC is pleased to announce the addition of almost 1200 photographs to the Glacier Photograph Collection. This collection was compiled by the World Glacier Monitoring Service (WGMS) who collect and disseminate standardized observations on glacier fluctuations such as length, area, volume, and mass. This special collection focuses on photographs of glaciers for which long fluctuation series are available, some of them dating back to the 18th century. The photos were assembled from the WGMS archive, from contributions from WGMS principal investigators, and from various other sources that provide freely available data. To view the new collection, visit the Glacier Photograph Collection search interface and select “WGMS Glacier Photographs” from the Choose a Collection drop-down list.
