Vanishing Glaciers of Everest

What is a glacier? Why is climate change causing glaciers to melt faster? How do we know how glaciers are changing? Come and find out the answers to these questions and more with Vanishing Glaciers of Everest! Come and help melt our ice block to see why ice is so amazing, and have a look at Everest’s glaciers in 3D. You can also have a go with our remote controlled boat we use to measure the depth of lakes on glaciers, and find out what it is like to be a glaciologist, including dressing up in all the gear!  We will show you why glaciers are so important in the Himalaya, and the role our research plays in understanding how these glaciers are responding to climate change.
