Barry, Coxe, and Cascade Glaciers Aug., 1913. Compare this photograph to the more recent photo above. The pictures illustrate the retreat of the three glaciers that previously merged to form one glacier, known as the Barry Glacier. Maps show that, at the turn of the century, Barry Glacier extended into Barry Sound beyond the point where this photo was taken from what is now open water.

Description

We commissioned the project to support Our Childrens' Trust with their rulemaking petition in Alaska, but we will also use the end-product to support our work fighting climate externalities with various partners, including the Chuitna Citizens Coalition, Alaska Center, Kachemak Bay Conservation Society and Alaska Marine Conservation Council.

Purpose

This project investigates the the effects of the global financial system by revealing the quantifiable impacts to Alaska resources caused by market externalities, namely, climate change.

Scope

This project includes all peer-reviewed and gray literature regarding climate impacts on Alaska natural resources.

Information Dissemination

This bibliography has been appended to a petition submitted to the Alaska Dept. of Environmental Conservation, it has been circulated to local, state and federal agencies, and it's been posted on Inletkeeper's web site for public dissemination.
