Glaciers and pack ice contain approximately 75% of the world's fresh water: more than all lakes and rivers, groundwater and water in the atmosphere, combined!
Ten percent of the Earth's land area is covered by glaciers.
There are nearly 100,000 glaciers in Alaska, and most of them don't have names.
If all the glaciers melted, sea level would rise about 230 feet.
There are glaciers in Washington state. There are 26 glaciers on Mount Rainier alone! Find more Washington glaciers on Glacier Peak and Mount Baker.
Life exists on glaciers! The ice worm, less than an inch long, lives on the pollens, insects, minerals and bacteria blown onto the surface of the glacier by the wind.
