The Glacier Folio Project

Part of the Visualizing Climate Change Fellowship, the Glacier Folio Project examined at a wide variety of representational techniques used for recording ice field conditions, and set out to develop a clear, uniform carthographic language that turns the abstract scale and varying data sets into an accessible and visually compelling tool for communicating glacier ice loss. Recognizing that the dramatic loss of glacial land-ice is rapidly increasing and that this loss greatly affects environmental and social ecosystems, the project tries to invent a way to represent scientific research and communicate to a larger audience the impact and overwhelming magnitude of the changes that are now occurring to some of the iconic glaciers of our planet.
