Mark Meier and Mark Dyurgerov have written a commentary for Science magazine that discusses the contributions of glacier melting in Alaska to global sea level rise. They highlight a report in the same issue that shows how Alaskan glacier melting has been underestimated. They conclude that future sea level rise may be higher than expected. Their article is in the 19 July issue of Science.
