Record #117230:

Palsa-scale frost mounds / Frederick E. Nelson, Kenneth M. Hinkel, Samuel I. Outcalt.

Title: Palsa-scale frost mounds / Frederick E. Nelson, Kenneth M. Hinkel, Samuel I. Outcalt.
Author(s): Nelson, Frederick E.
Hinkel, Kenneth M.
Outcalt, Samuel I.
Date: 1992.
Publisher: Chichester: John Wiley & Sons
In: Periglacial geomorphology. Proceedings of the 22nd Annual Binghamton Symposium in Geomorphology. (1992.),
Abstract: Discusses question of terminology and pleads for more flexible, inclusive and accessible lexicon. Suggests nomenclature which couples morphologic and genetic inferences. Can be divided into four genetic categories: ice-segregation, hydrostatic, hydraulic, buoyant. Criteria for recognition of genetic variations include stratigraphy, ice fabrics, and patterns of ionic concentration and bubble inclusions. May be of aggradational or degradational origin.
