Glaciers

The main objective of the Glaciers CCI project is to contribute to the efforts of creating a globally complete and detailed glacier inventory as requested by GCOS.

About project

The Glaciers CCI project is focused on data creation (glacier outlines) in selected and currently still missing key regions, and establishing a more consistent framework for glacier entity identification to enhance the integrity and error characterisation of the available data sets.

As meltwater from glaciers and icecaps provide a substantial contribution to global sea-level rise, the project will also create two additional products in selected key regions, elevation changes and velocity fields.
