Glaciers & Climate Change

  1. 1. By: Jaden Maharg, Jessica Sheldahl, Charlie Haight, Alec Holman Glaciers of Awesomeness For Apathetic Teenagers
  2. 2. <ul><li>Before you read, here are a few words you might want to know </li></ul><ul><li>Glacier - a huge, moving, mass of ice, snow, rock, sediment, and water. </li></ul><ul><li>Accumulation - the addition of snow and ice to a glacier </li></ul><ul><li>Ablation - the loss of snow and ice in a glacier </li></ul><ul><li>Firn - the middle stage in the changing of snow to glacier ice. </li></ul><ul><li>Advance - the addition of length to a glacier </li></ul><ul><li>Retreat - the loss of length to a glacier </li></ul><ul><li>Surge - a sudden short ‘surge’ of ice flow </li></ul>Basic Glacier Terms
  3. 3. How do glaciers form? <ul><li>Glaciers are formed when snow and ice accumulates and is compressed into huge ice masses. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Not So Much Fun Facts <ul><li>Glaciers, today cover 10% of all land area. </li></ul><ul><li>But in the ice age they covered 32% of land and 30% of water area! That’s a lot! </li></ul><ul><li>In the past 750,000 years there have been eight ice ages </li></ul><ul><li>Right now we are not in and ice age but in an interglacial period. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Why do I care? <ul><li>Welllllllllllll… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The glaciers seem to be retreating a lot lately and not so much moving forward. This may be do to the fact that we are in an interglacial period ( not an ice age). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>This is called Climate Change ! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>This is not our fault, its just mother nature (earth) warming up!  </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6.  Types of these Glaciers!  <ul><li>The Valley Glacier (of doom!  ) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>They look like giant tongues when they spill down into ‘valleys’ thus the name. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The Cirque Glacier (of happiness!  ) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>They are wide, not long, (I am being smarterer) and found on the high mountain sides. </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. The New words that you learned and what they are doing in your head!  Glaciers Firn Cirque Surge Interglacial Retreat!!!
