This project is the “glaciers" component of the MCM LTER. Research objectives include:
1) continue measurements of physical properties
2) data collection and analysis supporting development and use of a landscape scale numerical model of energy and matter
3) measure high-precision GPS locations for each active glacier mass balance stake
4) deploy a pressure transducer in an exsiting bore hole at Don Juan Pond to initiate a long−term record of pond water level
