where R is rate of ice loss (e.g., in GT yr-1), s is the fingerprint scale factor, k =1,2,3 is the set of source locations (Alaska, Greenland, and Antarctica), p = 1,2,3 is the set of destination locations (north coast, central coast, south coast), and t is time. The term RGIC-AK designates the loss rate from all glacier and ice cap regions with the exception of Alaska.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
