Record #112833:

Examples of ice damming of lakes in the Vestfold Hills, east Antarctica, with implications for landscape development / Damian B. Gore.

Title: Examples of ice damming of lakes in the Vestfold Hills, east Antarctica, with implications for landscape development / Damian B. Gore.
Author(s): Gore, Damian B.
Date: 1991.
Publisher: Canberra: Australian Defence Force Academy
In: Quaternary Research in Australian Antarctica : Future Directions : proceedings of a meeting held in the Department of Geography and Oceanography, Australian Defence Force Academy, Canberra, 6-7 December 1990. (1991.),
Abstract: Large abandoned channel is largely attributed to repeated failure of ice dam. Peak discharge of one flood was estimated at 57 m³ s⁻¹, and total flood volume at 8.2x10⁵ m³. Reconstructed impoundment volume is comparable to volume of water released during 1987 failure of nearby ice dam. In certain areas, these floods have been important mechanisms for reworking and concentrating glacial debris, creating alluvial fans.
