Record #117227:

Factors influencing the distribution and initiation of active-layer detachment slides on Ellesmere Island, Arctic Canada / Antoni G. Lewkowicz.

Title: Factors influencing the distribution and initiation of active-layer detachment slides on Ellesmere Island, Arctic Canada / Antoni G. Lewkowicz.
Author(s): Lewkowicz, Antoni G.
Date: 1992.
