Alaska Specific Research on Glaciers

Here is a quick video that discusses the research being conducted on Alaska’s Jarvis Glacier.  Two students at UAF are studying how fast the glaciers are melting and the impact that could be caused due to the melting.  What is the snow accumulation versus melt? What precautions should be taken? -any structures to be built to protect against the dangers?  Interesting video, can be used as an example of current research being conducted that relates directly with climate change and impacts.
