Sorry for the delay.
You were kind of correct on its importance, but not on its location.
It is located in Alaska, and it is important because that is the go-to surging glacier glaciologists follow.

Here is another question, since no one is asking any.
What are the types of moraines and where are they located on a glacier?

lateral-along the sides of a glacier
medial-in the middle of a glacier (formed when two glaciers combine and their lateral moraines join)
end/terminal-at the terminus of the glacier
ground-located under the glacier

Ok here's another question.

List and describe the 3 parts of the Milankovitch theory. How long is the cycle for each part?

Obliquity: The earth wobbles on its axis. Varies on a 41,000 year cycle. Precession: The earth's orbit rotates compared to fixed stars. Varies on a 24,000-26,000 year cycle. Eccentricity: The earth orbits in an ellipse, not a circle, and is affected by gravity from other planets/stars/other large object thingies. Varies on a 100,000 year cycle.

If all of the ice melted in the world, on average, how much would the seas rise? Two answers are acceptable IMO (multiple competitions have had different answers/both answers accepted). The answerer could clarify the situation if need be.

If all ice on land melted, the sea level would rise by approximately 70m (do you want my source?)

I would like to see your source, as that is not one of the answers I've had before.
