Gravity Measurements on “Fox Glacier”, Yukon Territory, Canada

  • David J. Crossley (a1) and Garry K. C. Clarke (a1)

Abstract

“Fox Glacier”, Yukon Territory, has a history of surging and is at present in a quiescent period. In 1968 a gravity survey was carried out over the glacier, in order to find ice depths. The results indicate the glacier is thin with a maximum depth of 88 m.

Canada, Le “Fox Glacier”, dans le Yukon Territory, a subi des crues dans le passé et est actuellement dans une période calme. En 1968 une prospection gravimétrique a été menée à bien sur le glacier pour trouver la profondeur de la glace. Les résultats indiquent que le glacier est mince avec une profondeur maximum de 88 m.

Zusammenfassung

Kanada, Vom “Fox Glacier”. Yukon Territory, sind aus der Vergangenheit schnelle Vorstösse bekannt; derzeit befindet er sich in einer Ruheperiode. 1968 wurden auf dem Gletscher Schweremessungen durchgeführt, um die Eisdicke zu ermitteln. Die Ergebnisse erweisen den Gletscher bei einer Maximalmächtigkeit von 88 m als dünn.
