Conducting research on glacier surface samples have been the focus of climate researchers in recent years. Century-old glacier ice hides very important information regarding the impact of human industrial activities on the climate.
Recent studies as a result of samples taken from around the world, including Peru, Canada, Greenland, Antarctica, Europe, and Asia reveal that electricity produced from coal and petroleum has a negative influence on our environment. Glacier also has clues to offer in finding answers about Global warming. How different ice ages lasted and their impact can also be studied by analyzing glaciers ice. On the other hand, melting glaciers as a direct impact of global warming are raising concerns for many regions in the world. Rising water levels are a threat to existing societies. This domain of research needs to be further promoted to make sure a continuous assessment of changing climate and to monitor global warming.
