Glacial Activity in the Western United States
Abstract:Four coordinated reports on recent trends in glacial activity in the State of Washington, U.S.A., have been prepared by three authors and three of these appear in this issue of the Journal of Glaciology. The fourth report will appear in a later number. Other reports regarding the condition of glaciers in this state and in other regions of the western United States have appeared in various mountaineering journals. It is the purpose of this paper to serve as a reference to the bibliography in this field and show how the detailed story included in the companion papers is part of a widespread change in trend. Results reported by other observers are reviewed briefly. In addition, some data on observations by the author in the Sierra Nevada are included in order to compare the magnitude of the activity in California and Washington.
