Our virtual field trips allow you to explore the fascinating and often spectacular world of glaciers and glaciated landscapes. Look all around and zoom-in on features of interest – rather like Google Streetview © – and see how the landscape changes from one location to the next.
Sure, there is no substitute for real fieldwork, but this is not always possible. Through its virtual fieldwork, VR Glaciers and Glaciated Landscapes supports class- and lab-based teaching. It can also be used by anyone wishing to explore these environments for themselves.
This site complements rather than replaces existing resources. So if you want to learn all about glacial processes, landforms and landscapes, start by having a look at some of the excellent websites, textbooks and journal articles out there (see Resources section for some recommendations).
Thank-you for visiting, and I hope you find the resources on this website useful. This is a work in progress, and feedback and suggestions for improvements are welcome.
