Project Pressure is a not-for-profit organisation set out to generate the world’s first Glacier Atlas in collaboration with World Glacier Monitoring Service (WGMS) and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
Project Pressure is an ambitious project operating on a global scale. The principal goal of Project Pressure is to document the world’s changing glaciers, and to record first hand the environmental impact of climate change. No such archive exists or is currently being generated.
During the next decade many glaciers will retreat or disappear and as a historic project, the relevance of Project Pressure will unfortunately increase as this occurs.The Glacier Alas will attract attention from current generations, who will grow up experiencing the consequences of climate change. Documenting glacier history pre-melt will provide future generations with a visual archive of the way the world was, and underscore the importance of preserving the balance of the world’s ecosystem.
