Record #73423:

Flood and landslide events, Peyto Glacier terminus, Alberta, Canada, 11-14 July 1983 / P.G. Johnson, J.M. Power.

Title: Flood and landslide events, Peyto Glacier terminus, Alberta, Canada, 11-14 July 1983 / P.G. Johnson, J.M. Power.
Author(s): Johnson, P. G.
Power, J. M.
Date: 1985.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1985.), Vol. 31(108) (1985)
Abstract: Describes series of events causing rapid erosion of massive ice-cored moraine below present terminus and deposition of 3000 m³ of gravel in valley 1 km below present terminus. Terminus lobe is now thin and slow-moving with only 15% of original glacier area and less of total ice volume.
