Mountain glaciers and polar ice caps continue to retreat globally, with tropical glaciers and snow being the most vulnerable. At 5,895 meters and with over 99.9% of the earth below its peak, Mt. Kilimanjaro is the largest and tallest freestanding mountain in the world, the tallest mountain on the African continent and one of the “7 Summits.” With only a few years remaining for its glaciers, Mt. Kilimanjaro offers a unique opportunity to study glacial retreat and the environmental consequences firsthand.

Antun Husinec is an Associate Professor of Geology at SLU. His current research interests emphasize the use of tropical shallow marine sedimentary record to understand modern and past depositional, climatic and oceanographic systems.
