Glaciers_cci is contributing to the efforts of creating a globally complete glacier inventory as requested in action T2.1 by GCOS (2006). This includes data creation (glacier outlines) in selected and key regions as well as establishing a more consistent framework for glacier identification to improve the consistency among the available datasets. The project is also deriving elevation changes and velocity fields from remote sensing data to complement the information on global glacier changes obtained in the field.
