The Abstract for Columbia Glacier:
The Columbia Icefield, which straddles the boundary between the Canadian provinces of Alberta and British Columbia, is the largest ice mass in North America, south of the Arctic Circle. The Columbia Icefield provides ice to six large glaciers and numerous smaller ones. The meltwater from these glaciers flows into three different oceans: the Atlantic, Pacific, and Arctic. The Landsat images from 1988 to 2006 suggest potential climate change through the recession of the glacier.
