Antarctic Glacier Photos Added to the Glacier Photo Collection

Photographs of glaciers in the McMurdo Dry Valleys region of Antarctica have been added to the Glacier Photo Collection. While the valleys themselves are notably ice-free, a number of glaciers terminate in the valleys, some acting as outlets to the East Antarctic Ice Sheet. Studies show that the majority of the glaciers in this area are receding. Glaciers were photographed in the course of geologic studies and help document the conditions of the glaciers and how they may have changed. To view the photos, see the Glacier Photo Collection Search & Order Interface.
