Kinked moraines on the surge-type Tweedsmuir Glacier, Tatshenshini-Alsek Provincial Park, British Columbia. Glacial surges are short-lived events where a glacier can move with velocities up to 100 times faster than normal and advance substantially. Glaciers across the St Elias Mountains are melting rapidly with enhanced global climate change.
