Album caption: Ice cataract at mouth of glacier tributary to Nadena Glacier. Copper River region, Alaska. No index card available.
Abstract: P-band interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) data at 5 m resolution from Kahiltna Glacier, the largest glacier in the Alaska Range, Alaska, USA, show pronounced spatial variation in penetration depth, δ P. We obtained δ P by differencing X- and P-band digital elevation models. δ P varied significantly over the glacier, but it was possible to distinguish representative zones. In the accumulation area, δ P decreased with decreasing elevation from 18±3 m in the percolation zone to 10±4 m in the wet snow zone. In the central portion of the ablation area, a location free of debris and crevasses, we identified a zone of very high δ P (34±4 m) which decreased at lower elevations (23±3 m in bare ice...

Yosemite National Park, California. The High Sierra, viewed from El Capitan. Half Dome and the head of Yosemite Valley in the center. Freshly fallen snow whitens the distant peaks and gives them a wintry aspect representative in some measure of the conditions that prevailed during the ice age when large glaciers extended from the High Sierra down to the Yosemite region. Circa 1914. Plate 11-A, U.S. Geological Survey Professional paper 160.

Granite Park in Glacier National Park. View north from Logan Pass to Granite Park (middle), an erosion remnant of a Pliocene (?) or early Pleistocene benchland; Haystack Butte and the Garden Wall (Continental Divide) at the right. Montana. September 8, 1928. Figure 7, in U.S.Geological Survey Professional paper 231. 1953.

Mount Rainier National Park, Washington. Southwest of the White River valley on the northeast side of Mount Rainier. Rock debris was deposited in 1963 by avalanches on Emmons Glacier (center). It extended about 4 miles from the north side of Little Tahoma Peak to a point on the valley floor just to the right of the dead snag (lower left). The forested area on the valley floor is a terminal moraine of the Emmons Glacier formed within the last few centuries. 1964.

Oblique aerial view showing Yentna Glacier, which is a fine example of a large valley glacier having many tributaries. The even, undistorted medial moraines mark the juncture of ice streams from adjacent tributaries. In the background is Mount Foraker (5,300 m or 17,400 ft). Yentna district, Cook Inlet region, Alaska. n.d. Published on page 5 in U. S. Geological Survey. Glaciers: A Water Resource, by Mark Meier and Austin Post. 1995.
