For each glacier calculate ([km^2 at 1993] - [km^2 at 1850] ))/(1993-1850)
Hey , wondering if anyone could help me with this problem:
What was the rate, in km^2/yr, that each of the glaciers receeded between 1850 and 1993?
a. Aggasiz Glacier
b. Vulture Glacier
The values for them are:
1850 Area:
a. Aggasiz 4.06 km^2
b. Vulture 0.77 km^2
1993 Area:
a. Aggasiz 1.02 km^2
b. Vulture 0.21 km^2
I need to find the speed, not the percentage (which I figured out in a previous question which was 75% and 73% respectively).
I did this question, but I forgot how to get the answers. They are:
a. 0.0214 km^2/yr
b. 0.00392 km^2/yr
