GY 301: Geomorphology Lab 9: Alpine Glaciers and Geomorphology Page 1 of 5 Your Task: Today’s lab deals with the interpretation of geomorphological features that typically result from alpine glacial activity. The exercises should be able to be completed within the 2 hour lab period provided that you do focused work on them. The most common scale (1:24,000) will not easily fit on the small desks that we have in room 42 and today, some of the questions require you to compare maps. Once again, it might be a good idea to push a couple of desks together. Please put the desks back in rows when you are done. Outside of the normal lab session, maps are available in the storage cabinets in room 337. They are alphabetically sorted. Due Date: 5:00 PM, Friday November 6 th PART ONE: Here There Be Ice Problem 1: Scan of Mt. Rainier, Washington 30' Quadrangle (see figure on next page). a) Mount Rainer is a composite mountain that reaches elevations above 14,000 feet. It is also a major area for alpine glaciers. What glacial geomorphological feature is represented by Cathedral Rocks and Success Cleaver? _________________________________________________________ [2 points] b) A possibly tricky question. Find Ingraham Glacier in the SW corner of the map. Based upon the contour line pattern, circle the point(s) on the map where you would expect to find crevasses. Why here?
