Agassiz Glacier (Alaska) facts for kids
Quick facts for kidsAgassiz Glacier
Malaspina Glacier is a compound glacier, formed by the merger of several valley glaciers, the most prominent of which seen here are Agassiz Glacier (left) and Seward Glacier (right).
The agglomeration of the Agassiz Glacier is located on the southern flank of Mount Malaspina north of the Canada–United States border. The 25 km long glacier is fed by the Newton Glacier. The three kilometres-wide glacier flows initially in a southwesterly direction, later in a south-easterly direction. From the west, the Libbey Glacier meets the Agassiz Glacier. This finally merges into the Malaspina Glacier, which finally flows into the Gulf of Alaska.
