Effects of isostatic rebound on post glacier landscapes along the Herbert Glacier Trail
- Keywords: forest ecology, glacier retreat, isostatic uplifting

This study will examine the possible effects on the forest ecology along the Herbert Glacier Trail, caused by glacier retreat as well as Isostatic uplifting. The data will be collected by taking tree core samples along the trail and analyzing the rings to determine their approximate age. The information collected in this study will also be advantageous for ecosystem services by producing imagery to correlate with GPS markings of each sample.
