Jerry Freilich at the Olympic National Park checked in by email to share a link to a documentary he has been working on about our shrinking glaciers in the Northwest.
“Some of you may be aware that one of my jobs is as director of the North Coast & Cascades Science Learning Network. That organization encourages research in Northwest national parks and disseminates the results of that research. One of the things we do is create videos highlighting NPS science activities.
We’re tremendously pleased to announce a brand new video on glacier monitoring at North Cascades and Mount Rainier national parks. The new video features our lead glaciologist, Dr. Jon Riedel, showing what he does and explaining why he does it.
We also show Laura Walkup and her related work at Mount Rainier. The video is 18 minutes long and streamed in HD video at: http://www.nwparkscience.org/node/1076 . The film is a visual and audible treat, so click on the ‘full screen’ button, turn up the sound and enjoy. If your Web connection is slow, you can ‘unclick’ the HD button for a smaller file download.”
