Record #110900:

Present-day periglacial activity in the Natal Drakensberg, southern Africa: a short review / J. Boelhouwers.

Title: Present-day periglacial activity in the Natal Drakensberg, southern Africa: a short review / J. Boelhouwers.
Author(s): Boelhouwers, J.
Date: 1991.
In: Permafrost and Periglacial Processes. (1991.), Vol. 2(1) (1991)
Abstract: Describes active periglacial features in these mountains, which reach 3482 m a.s.l. Surficial diurnal freezing is evident by features associated with needle ice activity, while thufa and patterned ground indicate more severe frost penetration. Solifluction phenomena noted. Marginal periglacial environment appears to prevail.
