Record #110528:

Engineering geology of nearshore areas off Richards Island, N.W.T.: a comparison of stable and actively eroding coastlines / P.J. Kurfurst, S.R. Dallimore.

Title: Engineering geology of nearshore areas off Richards Island, N.W.T.: a comparison of stable and actively eroding coastlines / P.J. Kurfurst, S.R. Dallimore.
Author(s): Kurfurst, P. J.
Dallimore, S. R.
Date: 1991.
In: Canadian Geotechnical Journal. (1991.), Vol. 28(2) (1991)
Abstract: Main factors controlling geotechnical properties of sediments and their distribution are occurrence of shallow permafrost beneath areas seasonally covered by landfast sea ice, rapid degradation of permafrost in areas farther offshore, ice content of thawing pre-Holocene sediments, and variability in coastal processes.
