Abstract

The terminus position and locations of numerous points on the lower part of Hubbard Glacier were determined from 1:58,000 scale vertical aerial photographs taken July 30, 1978 and August 23, 1978. The same surface features were located on each set of photography, allowing displacement during the time interval to be measured. Velocity of the lower glacier for the 24-day interval was about 7 m/day. The terminus receded 45 m between the two dates. (Author 's abstract)
