Title: Atlas of the Cryosphere
Url: http://nsidc.org/data/atlas/
Publisher: National Snow and Ice Data Center (U.S.)
Description: The Atlas of the Cryosphere allows visitors to explore and dynamically map the Earth's frozen regions. Viewed from a polar perspective, the available scenes include snow cover, sea ice extent and concentration, glaciers, permafrost, and other critical components of the Earth's cryosphere. Users can zoom in to a specific region on the Earth and overlay country borders, major cities, and other geographic information. The atlas also allows users to save custom maps for use as images in other documents and to view monthly climatologies to see how and where the cryosphere shrinks and grows over the course of a year.
