Susitna Glacier, Alaska

 (JPG) Susitna Glacier, Alaska (530,729 bytes) ( 1,757 x 1,777 )
Folds in the lower reaches of valley glaciers can be caused by powerful surges of tributary ice streams. This phenomenon is spectacularly displayed by the Susitna Glacier in the Alaska Range. In this ASTER image, vegetation appears in shades of red, snow is white, and glacial ice is blue. Where the ice is covered by debris, the glacier appears brown. The image covers an area of 26 x 26 km, was acquired August 27, 2009, and is centered near 63.5 degrees north latitude, 147 degrees west longitude.
