El Niño means glaciers in the Andes are melting at record rates
Concepts of Thinking: Interrelationships, Spatial Significance, Patterns and Trends
Inquiry: Which parts of the Andes are impacted the greatest? What is where? What might have caused the acceleration in the melting of the Glaciers? Why there? How might this reduction impact communities? What could be the best solution to protect the Andes mountain glaciers? Why care?
Activity: Map (ArcGIS Online)the extent of the current glacier (see map above) gather data of extent of glacier for the past 60 years and map it. What are some of the patterns that can be seen. What is the spatial significance of the area. Make prediction on possible solutions to the problem.
