Record #117219:

Periglacial geomorphology: what, where, when? / Colin E. Thorn.

Title: Periglacial geomorphology: what, where, when? / Colin E. Thorn.
Author(s): Thorn, Colin E.
Date: 1992.
Publisher: Chichester: John Wiley & Sons
In: Periglacial geomorphology. Proceedings of the 22nd Annual Binghamton Symposium in Geomorphology. (1992.),
Abstract: Purpose was to construct skeleton of periglacial geomorphology based strictly on theoretically and/or empirically derived field-verified processes. Conclusion reached is that periglacial geomorphology has, at its primary object, physically based explanations of past, present and future impacts of diurnal, seasonal and perennial ground ice on landform and landscape initiation and development. Additional components include similar investigations of geomorphic roles of snowpacks (but not glaciers) and fluvial, lacustrine and marine ice. Advantages over previous definitions are discussed.
