Ground Truth Trekking

Sitkagi Lagoon

Waves have breached the moraine, and now salt water swirls against unprotected glacier ice. Now only a little water enters, and only during storms. But as melting ice undermines the moraine, and giant waves shift and grind down the boulders, this little gap will become more substantial. Tides washing in and out will carry relatively warm salty water in, and cold icewater, even icebergs, out. The more things melt, the faster they will melt, and what is now a tiny lagoon will become a 40 mile wide bay extending to the foot of tall mountains.
