Rapid Retreat Of Colorado Glaciers From 1919 To 1924

“BOULDER, Colo., Nov. 11.—Colorado’s glaciers are vanishing slowly, according to Professor Junius Henderson, curator of the museum of the University of Colorado.

Disintegration of the ice sheets has resulted largely from the excessive hot weather and the dry seasons during the last few years. The great ice masses on the glacier peaks of the Rockies have been in slow retreat for the last 23 years, Professor Henderson declares.

“However, the retreat has been very rapid since 1919, he said”

“Detailed study of the Arapahoe glacier reveals that the great tee sheet has retreated 40 feet ‘within the last 22 years.”
