College Fjord, AK

 (JPG) College Fjord, AK (387 KB) ( 1,282 x 1,603 )
College Fjord is located in Prince Williams Sound, east of Seward Alaska. In this 20 by 24 km (12 by 15 miles) sub-scene, acquired June 24, 2000, the northern end of the fjord is depicted in visible and near infrared bands. Vegetation is in red, and snow and ice are white and blue. Ice bergs calved off of the glaciers can be seen as white dots in the water. At the head of the fjord Harvard Glacier (left) is one of the few advancing glaciers in the area, dark streaks on the glacier are medial moraines: rock and dirt that indicate the incorporated margins of merging glaciers. Yale Glacier to the right is retreating, exposing (now vegetated) bedrock where once there was ice. On the west edge of the fjord, several small glaciers enter the water. This fjord is a favorite stop for cruise ships plying Alaska's inland passage. This image is located at 61.2 degrees north latitude and 147.7 degrees west longitude.
