Record #117223:

Mechanical weathering in the Antarctic: a maritime perspective / Kevin J. Hall.

Title: Mechanical weathering in the Antarctic: a maritime perspective / Kevin J. Hall.
Author(s): Hall, Kevin J.
Date: 1992.
Publisher: Chichester: John Wiley & Sons
In: Periglacial geomorphology. Proceedings of the 22nd Annual Binghamton Symposium in Geomorphology. (1992.),
Abstract: Greater availability of moisture in maritime, in contrast to continental, Antarctic has significant effect on weathering. Data are presented on processes of mechanical weathering, with emphasis on freeze-thaw, from Signy Island. Shows interrelationship of these processes and demonstrates manner in which factors controlling freeze-thaw can exert influence on other processes. Attempt is made to integrate combination of field and simulation data to deduce freeze-thaw mechansim causing rock breakdown. Shows that, compared to continent, maritime weathering rates are slow.
