Teaser: New Global Glacier Browser launched

The Global Terrestrial Network for Glaciers (GTN-G) is the framework for the internationally coordinated monitoring of glaciers in support of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC).

The new "Global Glacier Browser" provides a map based overview on all aveailable datasets (i.e., GLIMS, RGI, WGI, GlaThiDa, FoG, GPC). The new “Global Glacier Dataset Catalogue” makes available standardized one page descriptions of these datasets and links to the individual data access pages. All these datasets are compiled within the GTN-G and are made freely available for scientific and educational purposes.

The new website allows you to make better use of glacier data and information compiled by the internationally coordinated glacier monitoring community.
