Record #110478:

Relative dating of moraines based on landform degradation, Lee Vining Canyon, California / Marcus Bursik.

Title: Relative dating of moraines based on landform degradation, Lee Vining Canyon, California / Marcus Bursik.
Author(s): Bursik, Marcus.
Date: 1991.
In: Quaternary Research. (1991.), Vol. 35(3, Pt. 1) (1991)
Abstract: Cross-sectional topographic profiles of lateral moraines formed during different glaciations were measured to determine whether degree of degradation could be quantified and used for relative dating. Logarithmic plots of value of slope parameter against cross-sectional area show distinct linear trends for moraines of different relative ages. Slopes of trends suggest that degradation processes are not among those that can be modelled with linear diffusion equation.
