Record #185652:

Glaciers of North America: Glaciers of Alaska / Bruce Molnia.

Title: Glaciers of North America: Glaciers of Alaska / Bruce Molnia.
Author(s): Molnia, Bruce.
Date: 2008.
In: U.S. Geological Survey professional paper. (2008.), Vol. 1386-K (2008)
Abstract: Snapshot of Alaskan glacier extent based on Landsat imagery from 1972-1982. Describes 14 glacierized regions, which include over 100,000, mostly unnamed, glaciers, covering around 5% of Alaska's surface area. Glaciers in every mountain range and island group are retreating, thinning, or stagnant, particularly at lower elevations, in a process that began by mid-19th century. Describes background to and history of study, including discovery and naming of glaciers, early explorations and scientific observations. Covers glaciological topics of tidewater glaciers, surge-type glaciers, glacier-dammed lakes and outburst floods (jökulhlaups). Appendices list: relevant maps; locations of over 600 named glaciers and maps covering them; over 100 pre-20th century explorers, cartographers, historians, naturalists and expeditions.
