About Us

Global climate change is having profound impacts on mountain environments. In order to understand how a ?changing climate will affect alpine ecosystems and vital water resources in the future, documenting their current ?status is critical. The goal of this project is to implement a consistent system for recording the condition of glaciers? and alpine ecosystems in North and South America. Through a unique combination of repeat photography and crowd-sourced citizen science, we help alpine enthusiasts see for themselves the changes happening in alpine areas, provide high resolution data to climate scientists, and build public awareness through compelling images and media.
