Summary
Abstract: Scientific measurements at Wolverine Glacier, on the Kenai Peninsula in
south-central Alaska, began in April 1966. At three long-term sites in the
research basin, the measurements included snow depth, snow density, heights of
the glacier surface and stratigraphic summer surfaces on stakes, and
identification of the surface materials. Calculations of the mass balance of
the surface strata-snow, new ... View entire text
