Alaska's glacial melt could create the world's sixth largest coastal river

The glaciers are melting. That’s the old news. The update is that, in Alaska, there has also been a massive amount of rainfall. The combination of rain and glacial melt create a flow of freshwater that is doing what water does: flowing down to sea level. Right now, the water is flowing toward the gulf in many small streams but, because this is happening in such a small area of land on the Gulf of Alaska, it’s possible that the streams will join into one larger moving body of water. If that happens, a new coastal river would be born and, reportedly, it would be the world’s sixth largest of its kind.
