Late Pleistocene stabilization and reactivation of eolian sand in northern Alaska: implications for the effects of future climatic warming on an eolian landscape in continuous permafrost / L. David Carter.

Title: Late Pleistocene stabilization and reactivation of eolian sand in northern Alaska: implications for the effects of future climatic warming on an eolian landscape in continuous permafrost / L. David Carter.
Author(s): Carter, L. David.
Date: 1993.
Publisher: Wushan, Guangzhou: South China University of Technology Press
In: Permafrost. Sixth International Conference. Proceedings (Vol. 1), July 5-9, 1993, Beijing China. (1993.),
Abstract: General circulation models predict that in Alaska climatic warming will be accompanied by increase in precipitation, which may increase surface moisture and promote continued landscape stability. However, depth to permafrost is important control; if mean annual air temperature becomes warm enough to lower permafrost table and so facilitate drainage, drier surface conditions and renewed eolian sand-transport could accompany increase in rainfall.
