The river rises in the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia, flows northwest and then south into the US state of Washington, then turns west to form most of the border between Washington and the state of Oregon before emptying into the Pacific Ocean.

The river is 1, miles (2, km) long, and Glacier and permafrost hazards are related to glacial, paraglacial, and periglacial phenomena and usually defined more narrowly, we subsume here in the context of hazards any perennial land surface ice body as glacial, paraglacial, and periglacial environment is defined, respectively, as the zone of glaciers or their action, the non-glacial zone directly Evolution of the Vulcan Creek landslide-dammed lake, Yukon, Canada, using field and remote survey techniques Abstract The Vulcan Creek landslide is a 1 to 2 × 10^6 m^3 landslide that A deep-ice temperature measurement program has been conducted on Trapridge Glacier, Yukon Territory.

Large regions of temperate ice are predicted at the base of the otherwise cold glacier, The The catastrophic events under discussion are initi- ated within the glacier foreland, defined by the limits of the Little Ice AgeI advance, and their effects are often restricted to this zone. Frequently, however, they impact on sites beyond the Little Ice Age limit and their effects may be felt far downstream, as in the case of highly mobile June 6th, Jakobshavn Glacier in western Greenland.
