Record #117220:

Origin of certain high-elevation local broad uplands in the central Appalachians south of the glacial border, U.S.A.--a paleoperiglacial hypothesis / G. Michael Clark, James Hedges.

Title: Origin of certain high-elevation local broad uplands in the central Appalachians south of the glacial border, U.S.A.--a paleoperiglacial hypothesis / G. Michael Clark, James Hedges.
Author(s): Clark, G. Michael.
Hedges, James.
Date: 1992.
Publisher: Chichester: John Wiley & Sons
In: Periglacial geomorphology. Proceedings of the 22nd Annual Binghamton Symposium in Geomorphology. (1992.),
Abstract: Described features have weathering and soil development properties that are evidence of inactive or fossil states. Tentative hypothesis of cryoplanation explains known field relationships, may help to account for origin of certain colluvium deposits, and obviates necessity for complicated erosional history based on long-term cyclical events to explain origin of summit morphology.
