Black Carbon / Juneau IcefieldThe original objective of my project was to look at how black carbon is quickening the melt rate of the Juneau Icefield as well as what the effects are on snow melt in urban and rural areas around Juneau. The hope for the results of this study are to see a visible representation of how quickly (or not quickly) the black carbon is melting the snowpack. It will be important to continue this study to look at how it is changing long term, but for now we are in the beginning stages of this study. We know that black carbon is effecting the icefield and the glaciers but this will help us to see what exactly it is effecting and how severe it is.
