While the content on this site is presented primarily to document the physical characteristics of the glaciers of the Juneau Icefield, it can also be very useful in the classroom. The velocity and height change data, in particular, can be used to supplement glacial geology courses with real-world examples of glacier dynamics. Likewise, the photos illustrate various glacier and geological features.

If you would like to use the information and data contained in The Crevasse Zone for your courses, please feel free to do so. I ask only that you send me a notice that you have incorporated this site, or parts thereof, into your lesson plan. In your e-mail message, please indicate your name, institution, department, and course title.
