Record #112549:

Mass wasting on valley-side ice-cored moraines, Boundary Glacier, Alberta, Canada / L. Eric Mattson, James S. Gardner.

Title: Mass wasting on valley-side ice-cored moraines, Boundary Glacier, Alberta, Canada / L. Eric Mattson, James S. Gardner.
Author(s): Mattson, L. Eric.
Gardner, James S.
Date: 1991.
In: Geografiska Annaler. Series A. Physical Geography. (1991.), Vol. 73A(3-4) (1991)
Abstract: Presence of core of ice, largely of glacial origin, is major contributing factor to instability of recently exposed valley-side moraines as it encourages mass wasting on slopes next to moraines. Most unstable slopes are those nearest glacier (most recently deglaciated). Mass-wasting events are probably triggered by accumulation of rain water and/or water from ablation at surface of core of ice.
