If you are looking for some virtual fieldwork, VR Glaciers and Glaciated Landscapes may be of interest. Our virtual field trips allow you to explore the fascinating and often spectacular world of glaciers and glaciated landscapes. Look all around and zoom-in on features of interest – rather like Google Streetview  – and see how the landscape changes from one location to the next. This free and easy-to-use resource from the University of Worcester provides ground-level virtual fieldwork to locations in Switzerland, California and the English Lake District.

You can view a short video that provides an overview of VR Glaciers here: (~ 2mins). Financial support is gratefully acknowledged from the University of Worcester, the Quaternary Research Association and the British Society for Geomorphology.
