Great Rate of Snowfall High Mountains of Hawaii During Ice Age for Glaciers Gone But Temps Still Close to What Did It


At the summits of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea of Hawaii the average low temperature is about 35 deg. F. throughout the year (only 1,300 miles from the equator) and the average high temperature about 50 deg. F., so during the Ice Age with much greater cloud cover, the average high temperature was probably 40 degrees and the winters near or somewhat below freezing (because of the cloud cover shielding from solar radiation), yet the snowfall so great off the warmer Ice Age ocean (in the aftermath of Noah’s Flood) that its accumulation so great that the melting was less than the accumulation, hence glaciers down to 9,000 on those Hawaiian peaks (as well as on Haleakala).
