The Oregon Cascade Mountain Range divides the state between the dry east and wet west. This mountain range hosts crucial water resources for Oregonians in the form of snowpack and glaciers. While snowpack varies year to year, Cascade glaciers act as a reliable water resource every year. These glaciers also interacted with volcanic eruptions that helped shape the range itself. However, global warming is driving an unprecedented retreat and disappearance of glaciers, threatening a vital water resource, and serving as visual indicators of how human greenhouse gas emissions are changing the landscape and environment of Oregon.
