Our Changing Climate: More about WA's shrinking glaciers

By Seth Preston, Communications Manager, Air Quality Program

The Peninsula Daily News recently published this article on melting glaciers in Olympic National Park.

(Coincidentally, it was published right before last week’s big snow and ice storm.)

You can find more here about the study and see some striking photos that show how much specific glaciers have melted off over the decades. The web page gives as a good summary of the study and puts it in context with melting glaciers worldwide.

In case you missed the “Our Changing Climate” post on Jan. 9, the Yakima Herald-Republic published this story about melting glaciers on Mount Adams.

For more information on Cascade Mountains glaciers, check out the North Cascade Glacier Climate Project from Nichols College in Massachusetts.
