In the Shadow of Melting Glaciers - Paperback - Mark Carey - Oxford University Press.   Her book, The Secret Lives of Glaciers, explores the stories of Icelandic people and glaciers through the lens of climatic changes. She is currently working on In Tangible Ice, a multi-year Arctic project examining the socio-physical dimensions of glacier retreat in near-glacier communities across all eight circumpolar nations.

        Colorado Glaciers and Snowfields of the Front Range. While Colorado isn’t as blessed as the Pacific Northwest to have magnificent year-round glaciers, Colorado still has it’s own set of permanent snowfields and mini glaciers across the state. In all, Colorado has 14 named glaciers and approximately snowfields.   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 tell the story, glacier by glacier, of response to climate change from

      Together they contain 89 features, totaling km 2, representing 8% of the glacier population and 6% of the ice-covered area in Montana. They range in size from to km 2, the largest of which is the McDonald Glacier. The elevation range of the glaciers and perennial snowfields is m to m, with an average elevation of m.   But many people – those who live near glaciers and those who live farther away – express a deep appreciation and concern for glaciers beyond issues of water and hazards. In this chapter we examine cultural values of glaciers that derive from culturally specific standards, rather than from universal market-based monetary by: 5.

Glaciers in every mountain range and island group are experiencing significant retreat, thinning, and (or) stagnation, especially those at lower elevations, a process that began by the middle of the 19th century.

Glaciers may be classified as warm or cold depending on whether their temperatures are above or below °C (14°F). Geological Impact Glaciers alter topography, and their work includes erosion, transportation, and deposition. Mountain glaciers carve out amphitheaterlike vertical-walled valley heads, or cirques, at their sources.
