Last week I had to prepare a presentation for an audience with no glaciological background. I wanted to explain some basic concepts of glaciology such as accumulation, ablation, equilibrium line altitude and mass movement in a glacier.
Since I’m no good at drawing and I thought that such graphics might be useful for further occasions, I asked a professional graphic designer (who also happens to be my sister) to make a series of simple glacier graphics that I could click through while explaining the concepts.
Here is the result (click on the images for a larger version and to scroll between them):
Although these are the first scientific graphics my sister ever made, I believe she made a really good job!
Don’t hesitate to leave us some comments here or on Github! We’d love to hear your feedback as well as improvement suggestions.
