During the past century, many glaciers of the Greater Himalaya have been in retreat. Rivers of Ice: Vanishing Glaciers of the Greater Himalaya reveals the dramatic glacial melt through stunning photography taken by mountaineer, filmmaker and GlacierWorks founder David Breashears. The exhibition also includes artifacts and displays relating to mountaineering and to the inhabitants of the region. The exhibition at the MIT Museum, a related symposium being organized by the Cambridge Science Festival, and other talks and lectures throughout 2012, will provide insight to some of the most groundbreaking environmental research currently taking place, and offer the general public the opportunity to engage with scientists and researchers.
