Global Warming's Effect on Glaciers

 1) Dr Carlson founded the Oregon Glacier Institute to document how many glaciers remain in Oregon, how many glaciers existed a century ago and determine why the number changed, and 2) measure a mass-balance and glacier-size network in Oregon that will allow 3) projections Oregon glaciers’ sustainability. OGI combines glacial researchers with citizen scientists to achieve these research goals while also raising awareness around the important role glaciers play for natural ecosystems, ranching and agriculture, fisheries, forestry and mountain recreation.
