Record #180062:

History of scientific studies at Peyto Glacier / Gunnar Østrem.

Title: History of scientific studies at Peyto Glacier / Gunnar Østrem.
Author(s): Østrem, Gunnar.
Date: 2006.
Publisher: Saskatoon: National Water Research Institute
In: Peyto Glacier : one century of science. (2006.),
Abstract: Notes earliest history of glacier is unknown and possibly involved complete disappearance in warm periods of Quaternary. Summarises end-moraine studies and botanical methods used to identify several earlier extensions of glacier, and 20th century observation of glacier front. Documents history of study, beginning with first known photograph from 1896 and including first scientific studies in 1933, selection of glacier for annual mass balance measurements as part of International Hydrological Decade in 1965, and use for training of glaciologists in 1970s. Presents glacier mapping chronology.
