Satellite Image Atlas of Glaciers of the World. Satellite Image Atlas of Glaciers of the World By Richard S. Williams, Jr., and Jane G. Ferrigno. Introduction. Most mountain glaciers worldwide have been retreating since the late s (at the end of the “Little Ice Age”), and global sea level has risen about 30 centimeters since then.

This chapter is the eighth chapter to be released in U.S. Geological Survey Professional PaperSatellite Image Atlas of Glaciers of the World, a series of 11 chapters.

In each chapter, remotely sensed images, primarily from the Landsat 1, 2, and 3 series of spacecraft, are used to study the glacierized regions of our planet and to monitor.

Bruce Molnia spent four decades researching this report and it is being published by the USGS (USGS Professional Paper K) as the eight part of the Satellite Image Atlas of Glaciers of the World series. Additional material is provided in the report. Glaciers and ice caps outside of Antarctica and Greenland melted enough to raise sea levels by inches ( millimeters) per year between.

Most glaciers in every mountain range and island group in Alaska are experiencing significant retreat, thinning or stagnation, especially glaciers at lower elevations, according to a new book published by the U.S. Geological Survey.

In the midst of global warming, some glaciers on our planet appear to be growing instead of shrinking. The volcanic Mount Shasta in the U.S. state of California is home to several growing glaciers, despite rising temperatures in the region.
