Field Observations on Lower Curtis Glacier

This is a visual introduction to our 31 years of work on Lower Curtis Glacier complimented with Google Earth imagery to illustrate the changes.  Each year since 1984 this glacier has received an annual checkup from us, North Cascade Glacier Climate Project.  The mass balance and retreat of this glacier is reported to the World Glacier Monitoring Service.  Many nights have been spent camped below this glacier. Unfortunately in the last seven years we have had mostly wet weather at this site, that hopefully will not be repeated this coming summer.
