Caribou Glacier

This glacier is located in a deep excavated glacial valley adjacent to the Donard Lake basin (fig. 1) (Moore et al., 2001). It is about 7.5 km long by 1 km wide at its widest point (Moore et al., 2001). the glacier starts off from the icefields in the mountains 6 km north of Donard Lake and ends 1 km north of Sunneshine Fjord (Moore et al., 2001). The glacier’s Neoglacial end moraine is the Donard Lake drainage area, which is located about 0.25 km from the lake (fig. 2) (Moore et al., 2001).
