Photograph illustrating how temporary lakes are caused by periodically surging glaciers: Tikke Glacier at beginning of surge. Tikke Glacier, located north of Glacier Bay, is subject to periodic surges in which the ice suddenly advances several kilometers at approximately 20-year intervals. This view of the glacier was taken when a surge was moving rapidly down the glacier. Lateral valleys to the right of the glacier do not contain lakes: farther up glacier on the left side the fast-moving ice recently has dammed the lateral streams. British Columbia, Canada. August 1965. Published on sheet 3 of U. S. Geological Survey. Hydrologic investigations. Atlas HA-455. 1971.

Photograph illustrating damage caused by outburst floods: Copper River. Copper River and Northwestern Railway bridge near Chitina being swept away by a major flood.
