Will Kochtitzky, PhD student in the Laboratory for Cryospheric Research, Department of Geography, Environment and Geomatics, uOttawa will discuss outburst floods and surges of Donjek Glacier, Yukon. The glacier has undergone eight surge events since the 1930s where the glacier rapidly advances after years of stagnation. Most recently, a surge event created a lake that drained in summer 2017, and refilled and drained again in both summer 2018 and summer 2019. We used a suite of remote sensing observations to quantify the impact of surge events.
