Climate change in Alaska's Glacier Bay National Park: A matter of fact

As Glaciers Melt in Alaska, Landslides Follow.  (The New York Times, 7/5/2016)
The Alaska Panhandle in and around Glacier Bay National Park has been the source of many large landslides in recent years. Scientists say the slides will most likely continue as warming temperatures cause more glacial melt. Glaciers buttress the mountainsides that surround them; when the ice disappears, the slopes lose some of their support, and erosion or earthquakes can cause them to collapse.
