Climate change is driving significant ice melt across the Arctic, Antarctica, and Greenland. Melting glaciers eliminates habitat for threatened species, increases sea level rise, influences ocean currents, and drives more warming in a continuous feedback loop. Use this app to visualize and investigate hotspots of ice melt across impacted regions.

UN Sustainable Development Goals
The UN SDGs help to guide analysis and policy to achieve a safer, more equal world by 2030. Global ice melt relates directly to SDG 13 (Climate Action) and SDG 14 (Life Below Water). For more information on the SDGs, visit https://sdgs.un.org/goals.
