Record #119734:

Cavity development in ice-rich permafrost, Pangnirtung, Baffin Island, Northwest Territories / James Andrew Hyatt.

Title: Cavity development in ice-rich permafrost, Pangnirtung, Baffin Island, Northwest Territories / James Andrew Hyatt.
Author(s): Hyatt, James Andrew.
Date: 1992.
In: Permafrost and Periglacial Processes. (1992.), Vol. 3(4) (1992)
Abstract: Examines development of these features following intense rainstorm in August 1984. Observations made since then, up to 1990, explain their development and permit construction of classification scheme for such cavities. This scheme enables appraisal of stability with respect to depth of zero annual temperature change and degree of natural arching support. Assessment based on elastic plate theory indicates that seasonal temperature changes are important factors in destabilizing near-surface cavities.
Notes:
