Are glaciers too sensitive for climate models? Glaciers have been used as the “canary in the coal mine” for years; however, blanket statements about their response to climate can be wrong. We will look at examples across differing dimensions which will highlight the extreme variations of the glacier system to climate.

Alexander Stewart, retired from the U.S. Army, is a veteran of the Cold War and three foreign wars; 20+ years of experience and life-changing events make him a unique professor. His experiences in the Army in Alaska focused his interest on glacial geology. He earned a PhD and became a glacial geology/geomorphology professor in colleges from eastern Kentucky to western Texas and north to St. Lawrence University. His research interests now focus on science diplomacy/military geology and tree-ring science projects related to landscape stability.
