Alaska glaciers account for less than one percent of the Earth’s area currently covered by ice, but a recent study suggests this ice is melting quickly. Airborne laser altimetry used to measure changes in volume and area of 67 glaciers in Alaska (including 14 glaciers from the Harding Icefield) estimates about 40 cubic miles of ice may be melting annually. This study further calculated that during the last decade, Alaska’s melting glaciers contributed eight percent of the observed annual rise in global sea level.

This is our last lesson from the Intro to Science Unit. You all did a great job so far and for those that did not do as well as they’d liked, there is still time for improvement. The next unit we study will be physics.
Be sure to review for the QUIZ that will take place during your lab period! The quiz will be focused around the SCIENTIFIC METHOD.
