Figure of modeled fate of glaciers

Detailed Description

Glaciers of Glacier National Park are projected to disappear by the end of the 21st century, regardless of future representative concentration pathways (RCP). Whereas the magnitude demise of glaciers in the larger Olympic National Park varies by emission scenario. The solid line shows the mean of 14 Global Climate Models and the shaded area shows uncertainty (+/- 1 standard deviation). The y-axis shows ice volume relative to 2017 estimates.
