For this project, Mike will focus specifically on building a working database of the more than 100,000 faunal samples in order to facilitate a diachronic understanding of the biogeography of the area and investigate the impact of climate change on marine fauna, particularly during the Neoglacial period.

Correlating the shifts in body size with climatic shifts does not appear to explain the fluctuating sizes of Pacific cod between 2550 BC and 80 BC, which occurred during the generally cool and wet conditions of the Neoglacial period (the first major postglacial cooling period from approximately 2500 BC to AD 1).

A pre-LIA Neoglacial age is conceivable, but Neoglacial moraines apparently do not occur in isolation from LIA moraines in the closest alpine area in which such moraines have been mapped, the Torngat Mountains of Labrador.

Research at Glacier Bay benefits from a long record of documentation and study, beginning with a crude map made during Vancouver's exploration in 1794 (Vancouver 1798), which showed the general position of the tidewater terminus of the Glacier Bay glacier near its neoglacial terminal moraine.
