Record #161660:

Glacier change in the North Cascades National Park complex, Washington State USA, 1958-1998 / Frank D. Granshaw.

Title: Glacier change in the North Cascades National Park complex, Washington State USA, 1958-1998 / Frank D. Granshaw.
Author(s): Granshaw, Frank D.
Date: 2002.
Abstract: Compiled inventory of all glaciers in North Cascades National Park complex, Washington State, USA for 1958 and 1998 to find extent of glacier change, its causes and impact of such change on regional water resources. Five small glaciers disappeared during that time and 80% of glaciers showed mass loss, partly due to warming, drying conditions 1977-97. Area rather than topography influenced change. During 1958-98, glacier mass loss contributed only small amount to stream flow of adjacent rivers, though it accounts for up to 6% of runoff during driest months of August and September.
Notes:

Unpublished thesis submitted in partial fulfillment for the requirements for the degree of Master of Science in Geology, Portland State University, USA.
