The Fall of New Zealand’s Glaciers

Nov 2022

A visual of glacial retreat in New Zealand’s most well-known glaciers between 1978 and 2019.
Some maps I make are definitely more sobering to create than others, and this is one of them – we are on track for a warming world where glaciers will be merely a ghost of their former selves.

Created as part of the 30 Day Map Challenge in November 2022.
