    The Crevasse Zone - Glaciological data collected on the Juneau Icefield, Alaska. Focuses on GPS-derived surface velocity, surface elevations, and strain rates.

    Satellite Images: Glaciers - US Geological Survey Satellite Image Atlas of Glaciers of the World.

    USGS Benchmark Glaciers - Long-term program to monitor climate, stream runoff, and the motion, mass balance, and geometry of glaciers at a few sites in Alaska and Washington State. Data are used to understand glacier-related hydrologic processes and improve prediction of water resources, glacier-related hazards, and the consequences of climate change.

    INQUA Commission on Glaciation - The goal of the Commission on Glaciation is to explore and develop scientific cooperation for the study of past glaciation and present glacier processes.

    Scott Polar Research Institute - University of Cambridge - World Data Center - Directory of European Glaciology

    Park Geology Tour - Glaciers - Links to U.S. National Parks featuring alpine glaciers, glacial landforms, and Ice Age flood landforms.

    All About Glaciers - Links to glacier research and projects, glacier facts, questions and answers, a glossary, gallery, bibliography and links to glacier information on the Web.

    Centre for Glaciology, University of Wales, Aberystwyth - Research focus is on glaciology and glacial geology. Staff expertise and research areas include relation between glaciers and climate and interactions between glaciers and the marine environment.

    World Glacier Monitoring Service (WGMS) - Source of information on glaciers and their fluctuations worldwide. World Glacier Inventory contains data on the spatial distribution of glaciers. Fluctuations of Glaciers and Mass Balance Bulletin document changes over time (changes in mass, volume, area and length of glaciers).

    Glaciology at Institute for Arctic and Alpine Research Research (INSTAAR), University of Colorado - Research and reference information on ice-flow dynamics and calving, sub-glacial and englacial hydrology, permafrost, glaciers and sea-level change, climate change and glacier mass balance, heat exchange within snow packs, and related topics.

    Global Land Ice Measurements from Space (GLIMS) - U.S.G.S. research project using the world's glaciers to monitor climate change.

    Glacier Image Database - A collection of photographs illustrating glaciation and its effects upon the earth's surface.

    Glaciology, Alfred Wegener Institute - Topics include introduction to glaciology; studies of ice sheet volume and glacier mass balance of glaciers by means of modelling, geophysical reconnaissance and field studies; and reconstruction of climate history from ice core analysis.

    Peter Knight's Glaciers - Information, photos, and links on glaciers, glacial environments and glacial geomorphology. Also additional resources for users of the book "Glaciers".
