GLACIERHUB - Story telling and connecting people

New Website

GlacierHub seeks to expand and deepen the understanding of glaciers. It tells stories of people who live near glaciers or who visit them, it provides information about current scientific research, and it offers accounts of the efforts of communities and organizations to address the challenges brought by glacier retreat.

It serves as well as a nexus to link people who are concerned about glaciers, so that they can communicate with each other and develop responses to the changes in glaciers. GlacierHub invites contributions-whether text, images, or sound files-from people who live near glaciers and from people who visit them, whether for research or for adventure or for the chance to see the beauty and majesty of glaciers from close up.
