Posts about Galena Creek Trail. Patricia Steuer updated her cover photo. April 21 at AM Offbeat Productions is at Galena Creek Trail. April 20 at PM Good thing I live with this model. # socialdistancing @ Galena Creek Trail. Offbeat Productions added a new photo — at Galena Creek /5(35).   Nice little trail that follows Galena Creek. Its surprisingly rugged for a "green" trail, and well-suited for mountain bikes to have fun on/5(5). Contents: List of Registered Historic Places in Washoe County, Nevada, USA: The locations of National Register properties and districts (at least for all showing latitude and longitude coordinates below), may be seen in an online map by clicking on "Map of all coordinates". The geochemical record in rock glaciers. A m ice core was extracted from beneath the surficial debris cover of a rock glacier at Galena Creek, northwestern Wyoming. The core contains clean, bubble-rich ice with silty debris layers spaced at roughly 20 cm intervals.

ICE-CORED ROCK GLACIER, GALENA CREEK, NORTHERN ABSAROKA MOUNTAINS, WYOMING [Potter, Noel] on *FREE* shipping on Galena Creek rock glacier book offers. ICE-CORED ROCK GLACIER, GALENA CREEK, NORTHERN ABSAROKA MOUNTAINS, WYOMINGAuthor: Noel Potter. Galena Creek rock glacier (GCRG), northwest Wyoming, exhibits most of the classic characteristics of rock glaciers.

Clean ice with silty bands was found beneath a c. 1 m thick debris mantle by Potter. He inferred that the ice is glacigenic, originating in the small snowfield in the cirque at the head of by: Galena Creek rock glacier (44°38'30″ N., °47'30″ W., elevation 2, to 3, m, length km) originates in a north-facing cirque.

Although this rock glacier morphologically resembles others described elsewhere, its upvalley two-thirds is composed of a continuous layer of debris 1 to m thick over relatively clean glacier ice and has a maximum measured surface velocity of 80 cm/ by: Galena Creek rock glacier (GCRG), northwest Wyoming, exhibits most of the classic characteristics of rock glaciers.

The ice-cored Galena Creek Rock Glacier, Wyoming, USA, has been the subject of a number of studies that sought to determine the origin of its ice. We present new observations of the rock glacier's internal structure from ground-penetrating radar.

Galena Creek Rock Glacier is a site of great importance in the rock glacier scientific literature, being a touchstone in the historical debate around rock glacier origins (Potter and others, ).

Rock glaciers are found in alpine and polar environments and are defined by a surface. Fig. Location of Galena Creek rock glacier in NW Wyoming. Fig. Aerial view of Galena Creek rock glacier, looking SW. Cirque floor elevation is about m, and toe of terminus is at m.

Galena Creek Rock Glacier (GCRG) has been shown in previous studies to be a debris-covered glacier (e.g. Ackert, Jr., ), and is thus a target of interest as a record of climate and an element of the mountain hydrological : Eric Petersen, John Holt, Joseph Levy, Cassie Stuurman, Stefano Nerozzi, Benjamin Cardenas, James Ph.

At least some rock glaciers do indeed have glacier ice cores (despite the controversy about the model's validity, see below). Figure 4 shows an example, from Galena Creek Rock Glacier, of an ice core showing typical banding due to the winter accumulation of snow that was turned into the ice of a small glacier, later to be covered by debris.

Ice exposures in rock glaciers The presence of glacier ice as a significant feature in rock­ glacier development has been disputed by various authors (e.g. Haeberli, ; Barsch, ). This follows from the "conventional", interstitial ice (or "permafrost") theory of rock-glacier.

Direct evidence of internal properties was obtained by coring the upper 10 m of the Galena Creek rock glacier (Clark et al., ) and Murtèl–Corvatsch rock glacier (Haeberli et al., ).

The structure of Murtèl–Corvatsch rock glacier appears to be substantially more by: the Galena Creek rock glacier is composed primarily of melted surface snow and rain water rather than melted glacier ice, sup- porting previous estimates of slow ablation rates beneath the sur.

Analysis of an ice core from the Upper Fremont Glacier yielded 36Cl concentrations of ±× and ±× atoms/l for pre‐ ice and between 2 × and. The rock glacier formation began after a phase of glacier expansion about ± 50 14 C yr BP. Further ice advance during the Little Ice Age (LIA) overrode the rock glacier root and caused partial shrinkage of the pre-existing permafrost.

Finally, during the 19th and 20th centuries, the glacial surface became totally debris by: Results: Site Geomorphology: Galena Creek Rock Glacier has been previously mapped into a number of rock glacier lobes by [12] (Figure 1a).

The upper 2/3 of the system is known to be cored by up to 20 m of pure glacier ice under m of continuous debris cover, while the lower 1/3 of the system is composed of ice. Galena Creek Rock Glacier (GCRG) has been shown in previous studies to be a debris-covered glacier (e.g.

Ackert, Jr., ), and is thus a target of interest as a record of climate and an element of the mountain hydrological system.

At Galena Creek, the ice/debris system has alternated between rock glacier and debris-covered glacier modes due to changes in the size of the accumulation area. In the rock glacier mode, coarse debris is concentrated at the base of couloirs along the lower edge of a small, steep accumulation area where it becomes part of the surface debris.
