The author has been studying the location of the terminuses of the Franz Josef, Fox and Langtang Lirung Glaciers during a Sabbatical. This poster demonstrates the line of the terminuses of each glacier in the year 2006. In situ measurements with a GPS were used to locate the extent of the glaciers. In addition recent Landsat OLI imagery was employed to show the more recent position of the terminuses. In the past glaciers in New Zealand were more resistant to recessions than glaciers in the U.S. and Europe.
