How many glaciers currently exist in Alaska?

We do not know. The number may be as large as about 100,000. Currently, there are about 2,000 Alaskan valley glaciers. Of these, about a third (667) have been given official names by the U.S. Board on Geographic Names. The names can be seen on the USGS Geographic Names Information System online database. Most of the unnamed glaciers are small cirque and mountain glaciers.
