Proposed Abstract Title

Glacier Behavior on Mount Baker

Type of Presentation

Snapshot

Session Title

Salish Sea snapshots

Location

2016SSEC

Description

Field studies on the glaciers of Mount Baker over the last 30 years have revealed substantial changes in the aerial extent of ice. The very low snow accumulation, reduced snow melt, and early melt-out in 2015 provides a hint at glacier behavior with continued climate change. This snapshot will provide a photo documentation of glacier behavior from the past through the summer of 2015 and implications on streamflow, stream temperature, and sedimentation.
