Abstract

Observations of fjord glaciers along the coast of Alaska indicate that their detailed fluctuations may have little or no direct relation to climate. In this paper the AA. further examine this question by focusing on the asynchronous Late-Holocene behavior of the Taku and Le Conte glaciers locates in southeast Alaska. The AA. propose that these asynchronous advances and retreats reflect changes in iceberg calving rates with time
