26 Gulkana Glacier , Martinsburg, WV 25403 is currently not for sale. In the future, runoff volumes from Interior Alaska glaciers, such as the Gulkana, are likely to be altered much more strongly by climate change compared to glaciers located in coastal, maritime environments. The addition and upgrading of sensors over the years have included measurement of precipitation (Sutron gauge) and new stations to directly measure lapse rates in each basin. Detailed results from 1966 and 1967 are reported by Meier and others (1971) and Tangborn and others (1977), respectively. It’s only about 2.5 miles long and is fed by two small accumulation areas. Gulkana Glacier is located about 175 miles southeast of Fairbanks, so the day began at 7:00 AM in order to have as much time as possible on the glacier. Daily precipitation records are complicated by thermal expansion of the antifreeze water solution. Overview College Glacier is a relatively short, receding, and thinning glacier in the Eastern Alaska Range near the Richardson Highway. View from southwest of the glacier (August, 2013). In G1 site also, the previous summer's snow partly remained. The 1,777 sq. This trail is located 60 miles south of Delta Junction, and 12 miles north of Paxson. The glaciers are distributed in different climate regimes to better define glacier response to changes in climate forcing. The Gulkana Glacier is located on the south flank of the eastern Alaska Range. (a) Map of Gulkana Glacier and the location of the experiment ‘Seismometer to Investigate Ice and Ocean Structure’ (SIIOS) array relative to Fairbanks, Alaska, and Anchorage, Alaska. If you have insights you would like to share we welcome those as well. The average ELA is near 1,735m which is consistent with a continental mountain climate. Gulkana Glacier is a branched valley glacier in interior Alaska on the south-facing flank of the eastern Alaska Range. Gulkana Glacier is a glacier filling several valleys in the east-central Alaska Range in the state of Alaska. Gulkana Gaging Station Data (USGS 15478040): Location: Latitude: 63°14'27"N, Longitude: 145°28'03"W., 1,125 m altitude, in SW 1/4 sec.28, T.19 S., R.12 E., Hydrologic Unit 19020102, on left bank about 1 km downstream from terminus of Gulkana Glacier and 23 km north of Paxson, Alaska. Drive in as far as your vehicle will allow (my Ford Focus made it a couple miles). Sold: 3 beds, 3 baths, 1892 sq. Location: Latitude: 63°16'3.91"N, Longitude: 145°25'15.97"W
Data collection and analysis are conducted by standard techniques developed by the USGS. Gulkana Glacier Trail. The study monitors climate, glacial movement, glacial runoff, glacier mass-balance, and stream runoff. The Jarvis Glacier is located north of the Gulkana Glacier; a drilling project was conducted on the glacier … Index-site glacier-surface and summer-surface altitudes, measured winter balance, and net firn and ice balance from 1975 to 1983 are reported by Mayo and Trabant (1986). We met up with the group in a parking lot at UAF and spent some time making sure everyone had crampons that fit their shoes. Location: Latitude 60°22'14"N., Longitude 148°53'48"W., 370 m altitude, in NE 1/4 sec.10, T.3 N., R.3 E., Hydrologic Unit 19020202, on left bank about 0.15 km downstream from terminus of Wolverine Glacier and 25 km east of Lawing, Alaska. Gulkana Glacier. To increase the spatial distribution, two additional weather stations were placed higher in the basin in 2012 allowing researchers to directly measure lapse rates in each basin. The station is slightly lower than the glacier's average equilibrium line altitude (ELA) and approximately 300 m from the east edge of the glacier.
