Glaciers in Denali NP&Pres melting faster than anytime in past 400 years, scientists say

Glaciers in an Alaskan National Park are melting faster than any time in the past 400 years—and summer temperatures are starting to climb, research published March 23 revealed. The American Geophysical Union released the information Tuesday.


Scientists who tested the temperatures of ice cores from the summit of Mount Hunter at Denali National Park revealed that summers are between 2.2 to 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than they were during the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries.
