Academically, this map provides a “snapshot” in time recording landforms generated as a result of the 1995 glacier surge, presenting them within historical and process-oriented contexts. In terms of collaborative techniques, it combines excellent cartographic presentation, digital elevation model generation, stereoscopic photo-interpretation and ground truthing “in the field.” It typifies the excellence of inter-disciplinary research work and is therefore a worthy winner.
