Juneau Icefield Expedition II

Digging snow pits and mapping ice movement: Join Link TV correspondent Jeff Barbee on the 2013 Juneau Icefield Research Program (JIRP) expedition to find out why most southeast Alaskan glaciers are wasting away. The JIRP program has been sending researchers to Alaska and Western Canada to study glaciers since 1946, and it maintains the longest running record of glacial climate data in North America. This is the second report in Jeff Barbee's two part series on Alaskan glacier melt.
