FDSN code XL (2008-2011) Network name Collaborative Research: Dynamic controls on tidewater glacier retreat (Columbia GIacier)
Start year 2008 Operated by
  • University of Colorado Boulder (CU), United States of America
End year 2011 Deployment region

We will deploy a single instrument at the glacier terminus, at previously occupied site BBB, to monitor iceberg claving activity using methods we established in the original Columbia glacier project. Additional measurements are also being performed including ice-pentrating radar, vertical aerial photography, time-lapse photography, surveys of ice motion, hydro acoustic measurements and weather monitoring. Our goal is to continue developing understanding of dynamic instability at marine terminating glaciers.
