Record #125733:

Palsa-like mounds developed in a mineral substrate, Fox Lake, Yukon Territory / Stuart A. Harris.

Title: Palsa-like mounds developed in a mineral substrate, Fox Lake, Yukon Territory / Stuart A. Harris.
Author(s): Harris, Stuart A.
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: Describes nature and probable history of these mounds, which have developed in mineral substrates at south end of lake. Discusses relationship to true palsas and minerogenic palsas; they differ from true palsas in absence of aquatic, fen, or sphagnum peat at surface in all stages, so that heat exchange process will be different.
