Fitzsimmons Range: Overlord Glacier & Mountain, British Columbia, Canada.
Mount Iago, Mount Fitzsimmons (2610 m), Overlord Mountain, and Overlord Glacier (left to right) rise above the High Note Trail on Whistler Mountain in the Fitzsimmons Range, Coast Mountains, British Columbia, Canada. Global warming/climate change: As of 2005, Overlord Glacier had retreated 880 meters from its terminus of year 1929. From the early 1700s to 2005, half (51%) of the glacial ice cover of Garibaldi Provincial Park melted away (Koch et al. 2008, web.unbc.ca). The record of 1900s glacier ﬂuctuations in Garibaldi Park is similar to that in southern Europe, South America, and New Zealand, suggesting a common, global climatic cause.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
