The report is one of a series to present brief technical analyses of data collected prior to and after the annually recurring glacial lake outburst floods (GLOFs) at Valdez Glacier. The goal is to describe this year’s event and how it compares to previously observed events, with sufficient information for the City of Valdez to better understand the complex nature of these phenomena.
