NOAA at NSIDC is pleased to announce the addition of almost 1200 
photographs to the Glacier Photograph Collection. This new collection 
was compiled by the World Glacier Monitoring Service (WGMS) 
[http://www.wgms.ch/] who collect and disseminate standardized 
observations on glacier fluctuations such as length, area, volume, and 
mass. The special WGMS collection focuses on photographs of glaciers for 
which long fluctuation series are available, some of them dating back to 
the 18th century. The photos were assembled from the WGMS archive, from 
contributions from WGMS principal investigators, and from various other 
sources that provide freely available data such as Flickr Creative 
Commons [https://www.flickr.com/creativecommons/].

WGMS would like to thank all those who contributed photos to the 
collection. To learn more about the WGMS Collection and to access the 
photos, visit the Glacier Photograph Collection web site 
[http://nsidc.org/data/glacier_photo/]. In addition, the entire Glacier 
Photograph Collection is also accessible through the Global Terrestrial 
Network for Glacier’s recently announced Global Glacier Browser 
[http://gtn-g.org/data_browser.html].
