The Neoglacial Record of Montana's Glacier National Park

February 2013
CO2 Science;2/13/2013, Vol. 16 Issue 7, p8
The article offers information on a study conducted by the authors related to the impact of global warming on Glacier National Park (GNP) in Montana. It states that there has been a reduction in the area of glaciers in excess of 36 percent, reportedly since 1850. It mentions that atmospheric carbon dioxide variability has had but a miniscule impact on earth's temperature throughout the entire Holocene period.

    Atmospheric fluxes of iron (Fe) over the past 200 kyr are reported for the coastal Antarctic Talos Dome ice core, based on acid leachable Fe concentrations. Fluxes of Fe to Talos Dome were consistently greater than those at Dome C, with the greatest difference observed during interglacial...
