Can glaciers come back if they melt?

    Yes, there is such a thing as glacier ice accumulation.  In some areas, snow and other frozen precipitation can accumulate in such a way that it will refreeze glaciers.  Two areas where this exists is Antarctica and Greenland.  However, with climate conditions, this is becoming more and more rare.  See below for more information.

    During winter, glaciers grow because of ice and snow buildup.  Summer brings higher temperatures to melt glaciers.  In the past, this has balanced out, but with warmer summers and winters, glaciers are shrinking and not being able to replace the lost ice.  They will continue to melt until few or no glaciers are left.  Glaciers will not be able to fully recover until, and if, the earth enters into another global ice age.
