Postearthquake studies at Sherman and Sheridan Glaciers

, : Postearthquake studies at Sherman and Sheridan Glaciers. Publication - National Academy of Sciences-National Research Council Pages 318-328

A rock avalanche from Shattered Peak and one from Pyramid Peak fell onto Sherman Glacier during the 1964 earthquake. It is predicted that the mass of this rock and of the glacier ice the rock will conserve by insulation will affect the mass budget of Sherman Glacier so that previous recession of the terminus will be arrested and reversed; once the terminus extends beyond the point of equilibrium with local climate, it will stagnate and become colonized by plants and animals. Sheridan Glacier, not affected by an avalanche, was studied as a laboratory control. Periodic future observation of behavior of Sherman Glacier, plant population, and molluscan population will provide an unusually precise body of knowledge of processes of glacial advance and stagnation and of the response of proglacial biota.
