Record #117982:

Altitudinal zonation of selected geomorphological phenomena in an alpine periglacial area (Abisko, northern Sweden) / Arian Niessen, Peter van Horssen, Eduard A. Koster.

Title: Altitudinal zonation of selected geomorphological phenomena in an alpine periglacial area (Abisko, northern Sweden) / Arian Niessen, Peter van Horssen, Eduard A. Koster.
Author(s): Niessen, Arian.
Horssen, Peter van.
Koster, Eduard A.
Date: 1992.
In: Geografiska Annaler. Series A. Physical Geography. (1992.), Vol. 74A(2-3) (1992)
Abstract: Sample of data was obtained by describing qualitatively 286 squares, each 500x500 m, in study area of 700 km². For each gridcell, data on altitude, aspect, slope, geology and geomorphology were gathered. Forms investigated were: mass movements (debris flows, solifluction, rock fall, free face), glacial processes (moraine, cirque, roche moutonée), frost processes (frost shattering, frost heave, hummock, sorted form), permafrost processes (frost mound), nivation processes (none selected) and fluvial processes (fluvioglacial deposit, fluvial erosion). Specific forms and groups of process-related forms show distinct altitudinal frequency distribution resembling normal curve. This indicates that even in small area investigated, some occurrences of form might be directly related to climate variables.
