What Is Glacier Power?

Glacier Power started as a 1997 middle-school curriculum supplement produced by the Alaska Satellite Facility (ASF) in collaboration with glaciologists, local scientists, teachers, students, and artists. Although parts of the supplement have become outdated, several components of Glacier Power are still user favorites and rank among ASF's most-visited pages.

In 2013, as part of a website redesign, ASF updated Glacier Power content in the form of the Q&A pages and lesson plans for teachers, available here. Many of the Q&A pages contain vocabulary lists, review questions, or exercises.

If users familiar with the previous version would like assistance locating content in this new version, they are encouraged to contact ASF.
