The types of glacier advance and retreat are: 1) seasonal advance and retreat. The glacier melt less in winter, so the end of the glacier moves forward or the ice cliff becomes steep. In summer, the glacier melts more, and the end retreats or the ice cliff slows down. 2) Years of advance and retreat. Glaciers move forward or retreat continuously for a long time, which reflects the change of climate conditions. This data set is the data of glacier advance and retreat from 1982 to 2000.
