Glacier Works - Before and After Glacier Images

Glacier Works is a non-profit organization studying the shrinking glaciers of the Himalaya and the impact of glacier melt on the people of the region. One of the neat features of the Glacier Works website is the panoramic before and after images. The panoramas show images of the glaciers from the 1920's side-by-side with recent images. You can quickly compare the two views by sliding your cursor across the panoramas.

Applications for Education
If you're teaching lessons on climate change and geography the Glacier Works panoramas could be a nice way to show students how climate change effects a region.
