Moving Images & Music: Kent Tate. One of the hydrological centers of North America is the Athabasca Glacier in Jasper National Park, Alberta. A hydrological center is anyplace where the water flows north, south, east and west. Something that struck me as odd during the floods one summer in western Canada was how ordinary everything felt except for the occasional clamour of various television networks. You wouldn't even notice something extraordinary was unfolding unless you where at the exact spots where the presence of all that excess water was impossible to ignore.
