THE RECENT ADVANCE OF THE MEDVEZHII GLACIER,
DIRECTORATE OF SCIENTIFIC INFORMATION SERVICES OTTAWA (ONTARIO)
In May and June of 1963 there repeatedly appeared in many newspapers, both national and those of the Union Republics, contradictory reports of a sudden advance of the Medvezhii Bear glacier in the basin of the River Vanch, in the Pamir. The advance caused some damage and not a little trouble for the population in the valley of this river. A group of glacio-logists went to the Pamir to study the phenomenon on the spot. Some of the observations are presented in this paper. Author
