Upsala Glacier
The Upsala Glacier
Glacier
is a large valley glacier on the eastern side of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field.[1] Its higher portion lies in a disputed territory between Chile
Chile
and Argentina. While the glacier flows from north to south it has three lesser eastflowing tributary glacier: Bertacchi, Cono and Murallón.[1] The glacier terminus is at Upsala channel of Lago Argentino.[1] The Upsala Glacier
Glacier
is well known for its rapid retreat,[2] which many see as evidence for global warming.[3] Its retreat has been ongoing since the glacier was first documented in 1810. [4] The name comes from the old spelling with one p of Uppsala
Uppsala
University, which sponsored the first glaciological studies in the area. The University is located in Uppsala, Sweden.[5] The glacier showed almost continual recession up until 1999

(ISS) is a space station, or a habitable artificial satellite, in low Earth
Earth
orbit. Its first component launched into orbit in 1998, the last pressurised module was fitted in 2011, and the station is expected to be used until 2028. Development and assembly of the station continues, with components scheduled for launch in 2018 and 2019. The ISS is the largest human-made body in low Earth

Gran Campo Nevado
The Gran Campo Nevado is a small ice field located in the southern portion of the Muñoz Gamero Peninsula, in Chile. It is about 200 km2 (77 sq mi) in area and feeds 19 outlet glaciers, of which the largest one is 15 km (9.3 mi) long.[1] See also[edit]Monte Burney Riesco Island Strait of MagellanReferences[edit]^ USGS.

Chacaltaya
Chacaltaya
Chacaltaya
(Mollo language for "bridge of winds" or "winds meeting point"[citation needed], Aymara for "cold road"[1][dubious – discuss]) is a mountain in the Cordillera Real, one of the mountain ranges of the Cordillera Oriental, itself a range of the Bolivian Andes. Its elevation is 5,421 meters (17,785 ft). Chacaltaya's glacier — which was as old as 18,000 years — had an area of 0.22 km2 (0.085 sq mi) in 1940, which had been reduced to 0.01 km2 (0.0039 sq mi) in 2007 and was completely gone by 2009.[2][3][4] Half of the meltdown, as measured by volume, took place before 1980.[5] The final meltdown after 1980, due to missing precipitation and the warm phase of El Niño, resulted in the glacier's disappearance in 2009

Glacier
A glacier (US: /ˈɡleɪʃər/ or UK: /ˈɡlæsiə/) is a persistent body of dense ice that is constantly moving under its own weight; it forms where the accumulation of snow exceeds its ablation (melting and sublimation) over many years, often centuries. Glaciers slowly deform and flow due to stresses induced by their weight, creating crevasses, seracs, and other distinguishing features. They also abrade rock and debris from their substrate to create landforms such as cirques and moraines. Glaciers form only on land and are distinct from the much thinner sea ice and lake ice that form on the surface of bodies of water. On Earth, 99% of glacial ice is contained within vast ice sheets in the polar regions, but glaciers may be found in mountain ranges on every continent including Oceania's high-latitude oceanic islands such as New Zealand

and Papua New Guinea
