Dear CRYOLIST-subscriber,

It is my pleasure to announce a new release of the WGMS Fluctuations of
Glaciers Browser: http://wgms.ch/fogbrowser/

The WGMS team and ESRI Switzerland jointly developed this new interface to
the Fluctuations of Glaciers (FoG) database. The map-based web-browser
provides a global overview of available observation series of glacier
front variation, glaciological mass balance, and geodetic thickness
change.

For all observation series, the new tool provides standardized graphs and
information about the latest observer and its sponsoring agency as
reported to the WGMS.

The WGMS FoG Browser includes a tool with predefined QUERIES for glaciers
by name, region, political unit, observation years, and current status. In
the ATTRIBUTE TABLE, you can find an option for building your own filter
and directly access the available data series.
Kind regards

Michael Zemp, on behalf of the WGMS team

PS The GTN-G Global Glacier Browser continues to serve as overview of the
various glacier datasets made available by NSIDC and the WGMS:
