From a Glaciers Perspective: Recent Climate Change Impacts on Mountain Glaciers-Mauri Pelto

Book Description: Recent Climate Change Impacts on Mountain Glaciers-Mauri Pelto Glaciers are considered a key and an iconic indicator of climate change. The World Glacier Monitoring Service has noted that global alpine balance has been negative for 35 consecutive years. This highlights the dire future that alpine glaciers face. The goal of this volume is to

From a Glaciers Perspective: Field Observations on Lower Curtis Glacier

This is a visual introduction to our 31 years of work on Lower Curtis Glacier complimented with Google Earth imagery to illustrate the changes.  Each year since 1984 this glacier has received an annual checkup from us, North Cascade Glacier Climate Project.  The mass balance and retreat of this glacier is reported to the World

From a Glaciers Perspective: Zongo Glacier Retreat, Bolivia 1994-2014.

Zongo Glacier, Bolivia extends 2.9 km down the south side of Huayna Potosi from 6000 m to 4900 m. Zongo Glacier is a small valley glacier located 30 km north-east of La Paz, and its runoff is directed to an important hydraulic power station which supplies La Paz. Note Laguna Milluni in foreground of the

From a Glaciers Perspective: Mahsa Icefield Retreat and Separation, Baranof Island, Alaska

The Mahsa Icefield is at the headwaters of Takatz Creek.  This is a small glacier, not an actual icefield.  Five kilometers to the west is another small unnamed glacier at the headwaters of Sawmill Creek.  Here we focus on changes in the two glacier using Landsat images from 1986 to 2014.

From a Glaciers Perspective: Carbon Lake Glacier Retreat, Alaska

On Baranof Island in southeast Alaska there are a pair of unnamed glaciers at the headwaters of the Carbon Lake watershed, that then drains into Chatham Strait.  Here we examine changes in these glacier from 1986 to 2014 using Landsat imagery.  The blue arrow indicates the northern glacier terminus and the yellow arrow the southern

From a Glaciers Perspective: Chickamin Glacier Retreat, North Cascade Range, Washington

Chickamin Glacier covers the north slope of Sinister Peak in the North Cascade Range of Washington.  The glacier has a valley tongue that descends to an outwash plain.  Here we examine retreat of the glacier from 1979 to 2012. The glacier had advanced from 1955-1975, before commencing retreat. Chickamin Glacier (Tom Hammond) USGS Map of

From a Glaciers Perspective: Eiriksjökull Reeat, Iceland

Eiriksjökull  is an ice cap just west of Langjökull In central Iceland.  Here we examine its main western outlet the Braekur using Landsat imagery from 1989 to 2014.  The Icelandic Glaciological Society website on terminus variations is the source of the map for the glacier. The IGS program monitors 50 glaciers, all of them are currently

From a Glaciers Perspective: Weddel Glacier Thinning-Retreat, South Georgia Island

Weddel Glacier is on the southeast coast of South Georgia Island.  It terminates in Beaufoy Cove just north of Gold Harbor.The change in glacier terminus position has been documented by Alison Cook at British Antarctic Survey in a BAS retreat map.  In 1958 it reached within 400 m of the coast at the outlet of

From a Glaciers Perspective: Bertrab Glacier Retreat, South Georgia Island

Bertrab Glacier is on the east coast of South Georgia Island.  The change in glacier terminus position has been documented by Alison Cook at British Antarctic Survey in a BAS retreat map.  In 1958 it reached the coast in Gold Harbor. Gordon et al., (2008) observed that larger tidewater and sea-calving valley and outlet glaciers generally

From a Glaciers Perspective: Southwest Brazeau Icefield Retreat, Alberta

The Brazeau Icefield straddles high peaks southeast of Jasper, Alberta.  The northern outlet glaciers drain into Maligne Lake and the southern outlet glaciers drain in to Brazeau Lake and the Brazeau River.  The Brazeau River flows into Brazeau Reservoir a 355 MW hydropower facility, before joining the Saskatchewan River. An inventory of glaciers in the
