Index of 130 Glacier Posts June 2009-August 2011

Glacier Index List
Below is a list of the individual glacier posts examining our warming climates impact on each glacier. This represents the first 2.3 years of posts, 130 total posts, 121 different glaciers. I have worked directly on 36 of the glaciers described below. Other glaciers were selected based on fine research that I had come across, cited in each post, I then look at additional often more recent imagery to expand on that research. The imagery comes either from MODIS, Landsat, Geoeye or Google Earth.

  1. Hi, i’ve got a photo comparison for Ochsentaler Gletscher (Silvretta Alps, Austria) from this year. You had a picture from 1995 in your Ochsentaler blog post, but no recent image. So, here is a comparison between the 1995 view and the current view (as of 03. Sep 2011).

    And here a little animation with the melted parts highlighted over the photos:

  4. Hi, I’m happy you have use for the picture. You may credit the image with Christian D. if you like. I’m not that comfortable with using my full name on every blog ūüėČ

    The lower part of the glacier, below the icefall, will IMO vanish in the next few years completely. If you look carefully, you can see that it not only shrunk in extent but the lower part is much thinner than even a few years ago, which indicates for me, that the ice flow from the upper part to the lower part is beginning to stall. In the icefall you can see fresh rocks on the ice from newly exposed bedrock, so the glacier will retreat above the icefall IMO in only a few years from now.

    I would have pictures from some of the Stubai and √Ėtztal Glaciers about which you have written blog posts too, but they are all from ski touring in the winter, which doesn’t tell much about the glaciers extent ūüėČ

    I hope my german school-english was understable. In any case, I enjoy reading your blog posts, especially when they are about glaciers I know (obviously mostly from europe) or about glaciers from remote places. Keep up the good work.
