The Randolph Glacier Inventory (RGI 3.2) is a global inventory of glacier
outlines. It is supplemental to the
Global Land Ice Measurements from Space initiative (GLIMS). Production of
the RGI was motivated by the forthcoming Fifth Assessment Report of the
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC AR5) and is being released
initially with little documentation in view of the IPCC's tight deadlines
during 2012. Updates beyond the IPCC 2012 deadlines will take the form of
additions to the GLIMS Glacier Database. As resources allow, all these
data will be incorporated into the GLIMS Glacier Database.
