The winter lecture series continues tonight at the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center with a subject literally in its own backyard. Students and staff from the University of Alaska Southeast will give the latest information on the glacier’s mass balance, lake temperature, lake depth and ablation. Those from UAS have mapped the seasonal terminus changes of the glacier and photographed ice calving events.
The presentation is at 6 p.m. and again at 8:30 p.m. in the auditorium. It will also be broadcast into the observatory to accommodate larger audiences. Admission is free.
