The number of glaciers worldwide equals approx. 200’000 – and they are present on all continents of our beautiful planet.
To help you locate them, we have the pleasure to announce that we have embedded to our website the world browser of fluctuations of glaciers created and constantly updated by the World Glacier Monitoring Service (WGMS, based in Zurich). The table here provides an overview on currently available data records and the increase from current observation periods.
From Kenya to Uzbekistan, from New Zealand to Switzerland, from Chile to China: the icy world is now yours!
