    Northwestern Glacier spans most of the width of the photograph. When photographed, the glacier was retreating and had a sérac-capped terminus that ranged from meters ( feet) high. Special Area Investigation Topic Statement. For my special area investigation, I will be connecting the topic of my website to my subject of focus as an archaeology graduate student: the prehistory of North American peoples. I will be looking at the archaeology of prehistoric North America with a focus on human relationships with the environment.

It lies above the Bering Land Bridge (BLB), also called Beringia (sometimes misspelled Beringea), a submerged landmass that once connected the Siberian mainland with North America. While Beringia's shape and size while above water is variously described in publications, most scholars would agree the landmass .

      The book, North By Northwestern, was a great book to read. Its a true story about a family legacy of fishermen that brave the vast, unpredictable Bering Sea for Alaskan crab. I personally enjoyed reading this piece of nonfiction due to the amount of detail the author put in the text/5(). The Wisconsin Glacial Episode, also called the Wisconsin glaciation, was the most recent glacial period of the North American ice sheet complex. This advance included the Cordilleran Ice Sheet, which nucleated in the northern North American Cordillera; the Innuitian ice sheet, which extended across the Canadian Arctic Archipelago; the Greenland ice sheet; and the massive Laurentide Ice Sheet.

National Aeronautics and Space Administration.]. The objective of this project was to investigate the utility of satellite synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery for measurement of geophysical parameters on Alaskan glaciers relevant to their mass balance and dynamics, including: (1) the positions of firn lines (late-summer snow lines); (2) surface velocities on fast-flowing (surging) glaciers, and also on slower steady-flow glaciers; and (3) the Author: Craig S.

JEFFRIES 1 Abstract Within fjords along the northwest coast of Ellesmere Island, Nunavut, are several types of ice shelves. This consistent behavior of glacier systems may indicate that climate oscillated over western North America early in deglaciation before it was recorded in other proxies such as ice cores.

Furthermore, the period in which we note mountain glacier collapse in northwestern North America is synchronous with the worldwide glacial termination. WELCOME TO NWSA ONLINE. Mission Statement: We are a network of professional and amateur scientists from diverse disciplines that provides support and a forum for research and education relevant to the environment and resource management of northwestern North accomplish our mission, the association publishes a quarterly journal, convenes an annual scientific meeting, and.

Glaciers exist in both the United States and Canada. Most U.S. glaciers are in Alaska; others can be found in Washington, Oregon, California, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, and Nevada (Wheeler Peak Glacier in Great Basin National Park).Reputedly, Utah’s Timpanogos Glacier is now a rock glacier (in which the ice is hidden by rocks), and Idaho’s Otto Glacier has melted Glaciers of North America— (4, km2) of northwestern Montana that borders southern Alberta and British Columbia, Canada.

It was established in because of its glaciers and unique, glacially carved topography located along the crest of the Rocky Mountains. In the ’s, 37 named glaciers existed in Glacier National Park.

surge-type glacier regions such as Svalbard, North America, Iceland and the Pamirs. Overall cycle lengths in the archipelago are not well known since only five glaciers have been observed to surge more than once (Dowdeswell and others, ).

The tidewater glacier has been steadily receding over the past century. The first comprehensive assessment of glacier mass loss for all regions in western North America (excluding Alaskan glaciers) suggests that ice masses throughout western North America.
