Gem Glacier (left) and Blackfoot Glacier (right) in Glacier NPP

Detailed Description

Gem Glacier (left; J Scurlock, 09/15/16) is perched on a bench that limits its area expansion, whereas Blackfoot Glacier’s (right; J Scurlock, 09/01/09) area is relatively unlimited by its broad basin topography.
