Record #112444:

Observations of aeolian transport and niveo-aeolian deposition at three lowland sites, Canadian Arctic archipelago / Antoni G. Lewkowicz, Kathy L. Young.

Title: Observations of aeolian transport and niveo-aeolian deposition at three lowland sites, Canadian Arctic archipelago / Antoni G. Lewkowicz, Kathy L. Young.
Author(s): Lewkowicz, Antoni G.
Young, Kathy L.
Date: 1991.
In: Permafrost and Periglacial Processes. (1991.), Vol. 2(3) (1991)
Abstract: Observations of wind action were made in late winter, spring and summer at three sites: Banks Island (1977-79), Melville Island (1986-87) and Ellesmere Island (1989-90). Timing of aeolian activity depended on site characteristics, including amount and nature of snow cover. Wind-blown sediment became concentrated spatially by denivation at some sites and was deposited on slopes as fans or layers up to 8 cm thick, affecting rate of deposition and form of slope.
