The terminus region of McCall Glacier under fog (16 June 08 08:44)

Published over 5 years ago by Matt Nolan

License license

The terminus of McCall Glacier is often in fog or a bit wet.  It's probably a good place for cool glacier air to mix with warmer, wetter air from the tundra and condense.

The last of the drilling is complete (31 May 08 16:56)

License license

The drilling is completed and we've lowered down our thermistor string, all the way to the bottom -- 200 meters!  Now its time to break everything down and ship it home.

This photo location was used in 1958 as a base station for surveying ice motion of the glacier.  Since we use GPS now, we just use this spot for taking photos document glacier change.

Ice cores from McCall Glacier stay frozen inside a freezer we constructed on the glacier.  Once the box filled up, we shipped them out via ski plane.
