Caption
A geologist cautiously approaches a large sinkhole (moulin) on Jarvis Glacier, Tatshenshini-Alsek Provincial Park, British Columbia, Canada. Glacier moulins (glacier mill) is a vertical tubular or cylindrical hole or crevasse through which water enters a glacier from the surface. They form part of the glacier's plumbing system. Glaciers across the St Elias Mountains are melting rapidly with enhanced global climate change.
