Title: Cold Science article
Url: http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/science/cold-science/2002-07-18-a...
Publisher: USA Today (Firm).
Description: University of Alaska scientists report that Alaskan glaciers are melting more rapidly than anticipated; an estimated 24 cubic miles of ice disappearing annually. Conditions promoting glacial growth vs. shrinking are briefly reviewed; melting is an indicator of climate change. Results confirm proposals that glacial melting is a major contributor to sea level rise; findings indicate that melting of Alaska's glaciers is making a disproportionate input.
