Glacier tongue 2008

Telephoto of the central drainage system at the snout of Vadret da Morteratsch. Water disappeared down a moulin and in this 2008 image, and provided temporary access to an under-ice cave system. The ring of dirty ice around the snout represents ‘basal ice’ comprising debris frozen on the base. (MH)
