Fubar Glacier Supraglacial Debris FlowSource: (Prime Ministers of Canada, 2006)




Fubar Glacier: In September 1999, a supraglacial debris flow originating above Fubar Glacier severed two natural gas pipelines en route to the valley floor of Telkwa Pass. In the image (right), the path of the debris flow can be clearly seen flowing over the ice and down into the valley. Furthermore, the overridden gas pipelines and the new route around the debris flow can be seen by their respective tree cut lines.
