A Multimedia History of Glacier Bay

This NASA website provides a fascinating and stunning virtual tour of Glacier Bay, Alaska. When you get to the site you will see a picture, and under it is a menu. Click on “Intro” and a new page opens with an introduction and explanation of how to take the tour that includes video “fly-bys” of glaciers and live footage of ice fronts calving into the sea. You’ll see lots of historic and satellite photographs too, accompanied by research information on what NASA glaciologists have discovered about the formation of glaciers and how they change over time. The images in the “Glacier Gallery” really are spectacular, as are the animated QuickTime movies and special effects footage. This is a great way to enhance any study of geology — and a fun family virtual trip to one of our country’s national parks.
