This web page provides a scientific paper written by a glaciologist and published on the web by the National Aeronautics & Space Administration. It focuses on the use of detailed digital image data to track small changes indicative of regional trends in glacier mass balance. If observed over a long enough period of time in many different geographic settings, glacier-terminus position changes can be related to changes in regional and even global climate mass balance.
