Grasshopper Glacier (Wyoming)
                                     

★ Grasshopper Glacier (Wyoming)

Grasshopper Glacier is located in Shoshone National Forest, in the US state of Wyoming on the east of the Continental Divide in the Wind River Range. Grasshopper Glacier is in the Fitzpatrick Wilderness, and is part of the largest grouping of glaciers in the American Rocky Mountains. The glacier flows north, and glacial runoff supplies water to Grasshopper Creek, flowing eventually into the Wind River. The glacier shares a glacial margin with Klondike Glacier, located to the south. The glacier is named for grasshoppers that have been found entombed in the ice.

Between September 6 and 10, 2003, glacial lakes flood GLOF was recorded when proglacial of the lake by the glacier burst through a glacial dam, and water from the lake carved a trench in the center of the glacier for half a mile.8 km Approximately 650 million gallons of water were released in four days, increasing the flow level of Dinwoody Creek from 200 cu. m 5.7 × 10 -9 M 3 / second to 900 cubic feet of 2.5 × 10 -8 M 3 / sec as recorded at a gauging station 17 and 27 km downstream. Debris from the flood was deposited more than 20 mi 32 km downstream. In GLOF due to the rapid glacier retreat that continues from the glacier was first accurately measured in the 1960-ies.
