unfortunately, i think North Swiftcurrent has been declassified? any idea if there's an up-to-date database that lists the current and former glaciers within the park?

I seem to recall hearing that, too, though I'm not sure. When writing the disappearing glaciers page, I tried to find an updated list of the "current" glaciers but was not successful.

an interesting article discssing glacier retreat throughout the park. the most recent date they cite is 1995, so it's not the most up-to-date information, but nonetheless provides some very interesting data about the park.
