Toolkit: Graphics

Repeat photography, and photography in general, can be a powerful tool in communicating climate change. Illustrations, too. This section contains a collection of visual media assets that can be used as props in programs, images on a website or in publications. Please browse through this collection and attribute credit to the artist or photographer.

This model was developed by the USGS Climate Change in Mountain Ecosystems Program in 2003. It shows changes in ice features and vegetation at Glacier National Park from 1850 to 2100. The model predicts that the park's glaciers will be gone by 2030. But the current rate of melting has surpassed the predicted rate, meaning that researchers believe the glaciers will be gone earlier than 2030.
