Glacial thinning and retreat
Description:
This wall along the a reach of the upper Muldrow Glacier doesn't appear to have undergone much change over this 57 year period. When you look a little closer, perhaps by picking out individual rocks, do you see changes more clearly? Which of these changes represent seasonal variation, and which represent a change more permanent in nature?
