Assessing the Sensitivity of Alaska's Coastal Rainforest Ecosystem to Changes in Glacier Runoff

Rates of freshwater discharge from watersheds in the Gulf of Alaska are among the highest on Earth (1-10 m/yr w.e). This densely glacierized region of Alaska is undergoing rapid glacier volume loss. Glacier runoff accounts for about half the total runoff from into the Gulf of Alaska.
