Abstract

To Preston P. Macy, Superintendent of Olympic National Park, the Committee is indebted for the first data on the recession of the Blue Glacier, one of the major ice streams on Mount Olympus. Annual measurements to its terminus were begun in 1938, the year in which Olympic National Park was established, and such measurements, MACY states, will be continued in future years, circumstances permitting. Thus one more sizable glacier is added to the list of ice bodies in the western United States whose variations in length and volume in response to current climatic fluctuations are being observed from year to year.
