Title: New Zealand loses its top / Martin P. Kirkbride, David E. Sugden.
Author(s): Kirkbride, Martin P.
Sugden, David E.
Date: 1992.
In: Geographical Magazine. (1992.), Vol. 64(7) (1992)
Abstract: Describes rock fall, which occurred 14 December 1991, on Mount Cook, which also brought down ice and snow before running out on Tasman Glacier. Explains cause of this event. Falls of this nature are difficult to predict; two insets discuss impact of rockfalls on glaciers, and rock-avalanche mechanics. Mountain is now 10 m shorter.
