Record #30839:

The role of diastrophism in the regimen of glaciers in the St. Elias district, Alaska / Maynard M. Miller.

Title: The role of diastrophism in the regimen of glaciers in the St. Elias district, Alaska / Maynard M. Miller.
Author(s): Miller, Maynard M.
Date: 1958.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1958.), Vol. 3(24) (1958)
Abstract: Discusses "earthquake avalanche" theory, first used by Tarr and Martin in 1914 to explain anomalous glacier advances in Yakutat Bay, AK, where severe earth tremors occurred in 1899. In discussing alternative theories, reference is made to new evidence from southern Alaska where earthquake influence is negligible. It is concluded that fluctuation pattern in Yakutat area is not unique and diastrophism to which these resurgences have been attributed was actually only minor factor in widespread set of glacier advances initiated by climatological causes.
