  About 10% of Earth’s surface is covered by glacier ice, and about 99% of this glacier cover is in Greenland and Antarctica. The other 1% comprises ice fields, ice caps, and cirque, valley, and piedmont glaciers, mainly in mountains of northwest North America, Arctic Canada, and Asia.   As a consequence, higher areas were deglaciated early, disrupting glacier flow patterns and starving thick ice masses remained in low-lying areas (Fig. 4).

How a melting glacier could redefine the Alberta–B.C. border. High up in the Rocky Mountains sits a glacier that is draped over the boundary between Alberta and British Columbia. Sherwood has written several books about historical surveys like the one defining the B.C.–Alberta line.   Schematic maps of ice cover in British Columbia during the growth phase of the last glaciation, about (A) 35,, (B) 30,, (C) 25,, and (D) 18, years ago.   Maps of glacier area in western Canada have recently been generated for and (Bolch et al., ), providing the first complete inventory of glacier cover in Alberta and British Columbia. Western Canada lost about 11% of its glacier area over this period, with area loss exceeding 20% on the eastern slopes of the Canadian Rockies. Wonder what your favourite glacier to ski or hike will look like in 20 or 40 years? A new study, which predicts glaciers in Western Canada will shrink by roughly 70 per cent by , gives you an.
