 Glaciers
Glacial ice is one of the foremost scenic and scientific values of Olympic National Park.
The rate of glacial flow is quite variable and Olympic glaciers are "slow-moving" in contrast to some in Alaska, which occasionally move at the rate of several hundred feet per day for short periods of time.
The glaciers on Mount Olympus, especially the Blue Glacier have been studied intensely since 1957 by scientific groups seeking valuable data on the composition of an Olympic glacier and how the ice responds to the climate from one year to the next.

 Glaciology -
Glaciology is the study of glaciers, or more generally the study of ice and natural phenomena that involve ice.
Areas of study within glaciology include glacial history and the reconstruction of past glaciation patterns, effects of glaciers on climate and vice versa, the dynamics of ice movement, the contributions of glaciers to erosion and geomorphology, lifeforms that live in the ice, and so forth.
There are two general categories of glaciation which glaciologists distinguish: alpine glaciation, accumulations or "rivers of ice" confined to valleys; and continental glaciation, unrestricted accumulations which once covered much of the northern continents.

The snow from which glaciers form is subject to repeated freezing and thawing, permitting the formation of a form of granular ice called nevé.
In the summer, the melted ice from the glacier alone may be enough to create a stream and whilst the glacier may be a barren waste of dense ice, fertile land is often nearby.
Glaciers may be tens of kilometers in length.

Mountain glaciers shrinking worldwide Wednesday, June 13, 2001 http://www.enn.com/news/enn-stories/2001/06/06132001/glaciers_43943.asp Mountain glaciers around the world are receding, a comparison of new satellite data with historical records clearly shows.
To monitor mountain glaciers around the world, the GLIMS project uses data from an instrument known as the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) that is carried aboard the U.S. satellite.
In addition to glacier size, Wessels and his colleagues are using the high-resolution images from ASTER to look at crevasses and even small bodies of water on the surface of glaciers, giving scientists a better picture of the overall health of a particular glacial region.

 Mount Hood glaciers melting   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
Most of the glaciers have remained roughly constant in size over the last few decades, after retreating from a neo-glacial maximum early in the 18th century.
Modern glacier termini are at about 2,100 meters, but in the last major alpine glaciation (Fraser, about 29-10 thousand years ago) glaciers reached the 700-800 meter level.
...glaciers have shrunk by an average of more than 30 percent since the beginning of the last century...the average temperature did rise about one degree during the last century - during the first half of the period - they're probably "retreating" less rapidly now than they were fifty years ago......

 Glaciers
In recent years, major leaps in our understanding of glaciers have been heralded as new paradigms in glaciology, and readers who are not intimately involved in the discipline can quickly fall behind new developments.
Much of the existing glaciological literature is indigestible to all but the most expert readers, and many of the excellent glacier-related texts that presently exist cover only narrow sections of the glacier story or spread their attention thinly into neighbouring disciplines.
The book considers glaciers from an environmental, as well as a physical perspective, and considers both the history and the future of research on glaciers, along with its relevance to human activity.

 [Eco-list] ALASKAN GLACIERS MELTING FASTER THAN PREVIOUSLY THOUGHT   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
To address the problem, researchers from around the world are working to quantify the contributions of various melting ice masses, but so far data have been skimpy, leaving conclusions drawn from them fraught with uncertainty.
To that end, a new study conducted in Alaska presents a significantly more comprehensive analysis of the contribution of mountain glacial melting to rising seas.
The findings are ominous: most glaciers have been thawing at an increasingly fast pace since the 1950s, and the Alaskan group has itself caused a significant increase in sea levels.
