As an extension of an intensive study of Gulkana Glacier a 42 station gravimeter survey was made to gain some insight into its third dimension. This survey showed that the glacier’s main tongue occupies a complex valley composed essentially of two parallel channels separated by a medial ridge which extends southward from rock bastions in the accumulation zone. At mid-glacier the ice thickness in the larger eastern channel is 225 m., in contrast to 130 m. in the western channel. The medial ridge degenerates down-glacier probably disappearing within 2 km. of the glacier terminus. The basic surface flow pattern of the glacier described by Moores can be adequately explained by this basal topography. Seasonal velocity variations are possibly caused by melt-water basal lubrication with one channel being favored over the other at different times of the year, in agreement with observations by Elliston on the Gorner-Gletscher, Switzerland, and with the glacier sliding theory of Weertman.
