  • Websites and history
    • The Juneau Icefield Research Program, headed by Maynard Miller at Univ. of Idaho, has historically conducted yearly, periodic research including mass balance and meteorological investigations on Lemon Glacier. Much of this work is well documented in JIRP white papers, but only a handful of research is published in peer-reviewed articles, listed below.
    • Visit Scott McGee's JIRP website, The Crevasse Zone, for more JIRP Lemon Creek information.

  • Data sources
    • The U.S. Geological Survey has maintained two stations for discharge and water quality measurements on Lemon Creek periodically since 19??. The station currently operated by the USGS is located upstream, near the Ptarmigan Creek confluence Link to USGS Website: Station 15052000. Some data exist for an historic site just upstream of the Lemon Creek Correctional Facility Link to USGS Website: Station 15052009.</p>
    • The University of Alaska Southeast Environmental Science Program has supported Lemon Creek research since 2001. Some of this student research was supported in part by an Alaska Dept. of Environmental Conservation Alaska Clean Water Actions Water Quality Grant. (See link to report in References section below). Both USGS Lemon Creek sites were occupied and instrumented with submersible pressure transducers, temperature sensors, and ISCO automated water samplers. Fifteen-minute discharge, water and air temperature, and daily suspended sediment data exist (though with record gaps) for a period of record from 2001 to 2004.
