July 13, 2009 — Glacier change in the Teton range is the subject of the summer lecture series Thursday, July 16, at the University of Wyoming-National Park Service (UW-NPS) Research Center. The center is located at the AMK Ranch in Grand Teton National Park.
University of Tennessee environmental engineer Glenn Tootle will speak at 6:30 p.m. at the AMK Ranch, north of Leeks Marina. A barbecue will be held at 5:30 p.m. with a $5 per person fee; reservations are not required. For more information, call the UW-NPS Center at (307) 543-2463.
Tootle says the Teton range preserves dramatic evidence of the last ice age in the form of 12 named glaciers. He will discuss weather modification impacts on the history and future of these small, variable sized glaciers.
The UW-NPS Research Center provides a base for university faculty members and governmental scientists from throughout North America to conduct research in the diverse aquatic and terrestrial environments of Grand Teton National Park and the Greater Yellowstone Area.
