Students compute LeConte Glacier position

A team of students from Petersburg High School last week compiled their latest data on the location of the tidewater terminus of the LeConte Glacier, the southernmost tidewater glacier in North America. It’s the 31st year of a Petersburg High School program surveying the position of the icesheet in a mainland bay east of Petersburg.

The location of the glacier’s face has remained relatively unchanged over the past decade and this year’s team reports no big change in the 2014 position. Joe Viechnicki spoke with this year’s surveying team about the effort just before they sat down to calculate their findings.

Results will be posted on the glacier survey’s website along with a lot of other historical information and photos from the program.
