Where in the World...
Many of the researchers out in the field use GIS (Geographical Information Systems) tools for their research, and increasingly for both public and professionals that means Google Earth. Check out the Then and Now images of vanishing glaciers on the Snow and Ice Data Center's GE plug-in. Explore Barrow, Alaska, and its Environmental Observatory - where we'll be taping this Spring and Summer. Find out where signatory nations of the Antarctic Treaty have bases, or where Koni Steffen is studying some of the fastest-moving glaciers in the world, on the west coast of Greenland.
