The Bering Glacier–Bagley Icefield system in Alaska is currently surging (2011)

The Bering Glacier–Bagley Icefield system in Alaska is currently surging (2011). This analysis is based on airborne laser altimeter data collected over Bering Glacier in September 2011

Bering Glacier is the largest surging glacier in the world, having surged at least six times in the last 150 years. Robert Allan Shuchman, Edward George Josberger.

Bering Glacier is the largest surging glacier in the world, having surged at least six times in the last 150 years. With the glacier advancing and retreating as much as 10 km over a surge cycle, it is one of the most physically and biologically dynamic places on Earth. This monograph presents the results of a comprehensive and diverse series of field studies and science investigations at Bering Glacier. Bering Glacier is the largest surging glacier in the world, having surged at least six times in the last 150 years.

The Geological Society of America (GSA) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of the geosciences. The society was founded in Ithaca, New York, in 1888 by Alexander Winchell, John J. Stevenson, Charles H. Hitchcock, John R. Procter. Procter and Edward Orton and has been headquartered at 3300 Penrose Place, Boulder, Colorado, USA, since 1967. GSA began with 100 members under its first president, James Hall. In 1889 Mary Emilie Holmes became its first female member.

The Bering Glacier exhibits "surges", acceleration events of the flow rate of the glacier, every 20 years or so. During these periods the glacier terminus advances. The surges are generally followed by periods of retreat, so despite the periodic advances the glacier has been shrinking overall  . ISBN 978-0813724621, ISBN 0813724627.

Glacier surge dynamics; Glacier surge processes, morphology, and landforms; Surge-type behaviour; Surging. Glacier surging is a quasiperiodic oscillation between long periods (tens to hundreds of years) of slow flow, called quiescent phase or quiescence, and shorter periods of typically 10–1000 times faster flow, called surge phase, active phase, or surge. During a surge, the flow velocity increases abruptly, and fast flow is maintained over some time (1–15 years) and over a wide area.

Therefore, the PRE-RIFT TWINNING STRAINS As part of our regional rift strain study, we collected samples of pre-Keweenawan, calcite-rich rocks that are adjacent to, and older than, the rift as a means of documenting the uniqueness of the twinning strains preserved in the rift calcite elements. Four of these Archean and Early Proterozoic suites were sampled, and range in age from ca.
