Group: Summary

   An average of 6 markers were surveyed on each of 15 rock glaciers, once each 
   in 1983 and 1995 using a level (1983) and a theodolite (1995). Measurement 
   error was on the order of 3 percent, however, the greatest variability in 
   observed velocities is explained by the varying locations of the markers on 
   the rock glaciers. Lichen ages were determined by Dyke (1990a), and rock 
   glacier lengths were obtained from 1:50,000 surficial geology maps used to 
   compile the maps in Dyke (1990c-f). Please see the data documentation for 
   further information.
