Actually, I’m not sure about this glacier, but many Glaciers of this type in this part of Alaska are growing in spite of global warming. This is because they are calving glaciers which are [not very responsive to climate](http://pubs.usgs.gov/fs/fs-001-03/), but more so to localized factors. Examples of growing calving glaciers include Hubbard Glacier [John Hopkins Glacier, Grand Pacific Glacier, and Margerie glacier](http://www.nps.gov/glba/upload/2004%20Glaciers%20of%20Glacier%20Bay%20Overview.pdf), most of which are less than a hundred miles away from Eagle Glacier.
I don’t know about this particular glacier, but it is possible it has been growing.
Edit: [Looks like this one is not among the growing glaciers,however.](http://glacierchange.wordpress.com/2011/09/25/eagle-glacier-retreat-juneau-icefield-alaska/)
