Welcome to AntarcticGlaciers! This page lists the different sections of the website that are relevant students in post-16 education, and especially to the “Glacial Systems and Landscapes” section of the AQA A-Level physical geography syllabus. These pages will also be relevant to students taking other exam boards for their Geography A-Level, and to university undergraduate students learning about glaciers.

Throughout the website, pages that are particularly relevant to A-Level students are identified by a yellow flash. Pages that are suitable case studies are also highlighted.

Each page includes useful links for further reading, and we are developing new activities to assist and enhance student learning.

These pages are aimed at people will less experience of studying glaciers, but do follow your interests and read about the other pages, as they will all have relevance to your understanding of glacial systems and landscapes.

For a series of dedicated pages aimed at supporting teachers and geography students, visit our A-Level section. For a more detailed look at how the webpages here map onto the Geography A-Level curriculum, visit here.
