Curriculum by Mary-Helen Armour, York University
In this activity, students will observe and measure the advance and retreat of glaciers in Greenland to see how glaciers change over time. By comparing glaciers in different locations, students will begin to see trends emerge in how changes are distributed and how glaciers are affected by climate change.
Learning Goals and Outcomes
- Measure the change in position of the glacier terminus over time
- Compare the change in position of the terminus of 2 or more glaciers
