Website upgrade!

Our old website

I created (originally back in 2015 whilst doing a PhD on debris-covered glaciers in the Everest region of Nepal. The idea was to provide an outreach platform to share research on debris-covered glaciers. The old website worked fine but was managed 'offline', which made updating/adding new pages very time consuming.

Moving forward

The domain change from to .org came after discussions and a donation from the International Association of Cryospheric Sciences Working Group on Debris covered glaciers to cover the costs of the switch.  RockyGlaciers is still hosted on HelioHost, so is run on a voluntary basis with the occasion donation from myself to increase our storage/switch servers when things break. Going forward, the new-look RockGlaciers uses the open source Joomla content management system, which makes updating a whole lot easier, so stay tuned for more content...
