Record #119245:

Applications of glacial, periglacial and Quaternary research: an introduction / J. Murray Gray.

Title: Applications of glacial, periglacial and Quaternary research: an introduction / J. Murray Gray.
Author(s): Gray, J. Murray.
Date: 1992.
In: Quaternary Proceedings. (1992.), (2) (1992)
Abstract: Reviews fields in which knowledge of glacial, periglacial and Quaternary research is relevant to society; these include mineral dispersal by ice sheets and concentration by water sorting; properties and uses of tills, sands and gravels, fine-grained sediments and peat; problems caused by periglacial sediments and structures; and use of land-system models to characterize glacial terrains and stratigraphies. Discusses: hazards and resources associated with modern glacial, meltwater and periglacial environments; Quaternary sediments in fields of groundwater and surface-water pollution; and importance of Quaternary past in understanding present and future environmental changes.
Notes:

Quaternary Proceedings. (2) :1-16 (1992).
