Life Cycle of a Glacier

Nova, Public Broadcasting System

This PBS NOVA site features a Flash annotated slide show that follows the journey of a single snowflake as it takes a ride through a glacier. Each captioned slides traces the evolution of freshly fallen snow on the surface of a glacier, through firn, and finally to ice. The site provides an interactive version of the slide show where users can click from slide to slide as well as a non-interactive version that shows all the slides on the same page.
