Glaciers in retreat.

Glaciers are very sensitive to changes in temperature and are seen as good indicators of climate change. Melting glaciers have been recorded all over the world on every continent. Many glaciers in Antarctica feed straight into the sea and if they were to melt, they would cause a large rise in sea level.

Watch glaciers melting - time lapse footage.

This video shows a time lapse video of the end of the glacier taken over a year. It shows how much the glacier is receeding. 

This video on TedEd helps to understand how the glaciers are receeding and why it is important to do something about it. 

The vast ice sheets at the South and North poles contain 99% of all the ice in the world and were they to melt as a result of climate change, the sea level would rise flooding large areas of land which are currently densely populated. See below for these predictions of what the world would look like if the melting glaciers disappeared completely.

Great on a tablet PC!

We wanted our pupils to use their tablet PCs in our geography lessons but we found there was a shortage of good resources to use with them. So we started making web pages that can be used in lessons that were accessed through the tablet's browser. What do you think? How can we do this better? Drop us an email to let us know.
