Barry Glacier Calving Prince William Sound Alaska

The calving of Barry Glacier in Barry Arm, Alaska is stunning to watch as large chunks of ice crash into the waters of Prince William Sound.

A huge section of the towering tidewater face of the Barry Glacier drops into the calm waters of Barry Arm in Prince William Sound in Alaska, USA. As large chunks of ice crash into the water, a loud booming noise can be heard for miles in all directions.

Tidewater glaciers such as Barry Glacier will usually remain in a fairly stable condition until the weather warms up. As Barry Glacier increases its melting process in climate changes such as the summer months, continuous calving can be very damaging as the thinning of the terminus creates a steeper slope and faster movement from the glacier.
