picture Introduction picture

Every day we read about our changing climate. Rapid climate change is affecting the Antarctic Peninsula - seven floating ice shelves HAVE collapsed in the past 50 years. Find out for yourself what is happening right here on Google Earth.

There are two ways to look at this map - view an animation of Antarctic Peninsula Ice Shelf loss over the last 50 years, and follow the icons to read science stories from the British Antarctic Survey.

To read the stories and see the vanishing ice shelves - explore the links in the left-hand sidebar (View - Sidebar) under "Climate Change in Our World - Antarctica".

The "Climate Change in Our World" project also includes information from the UK Met Office about future global temperature rise and its impacts. Click here to obtain further information.
