Abstract : 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)
