Record #125756:

The significance of permafrost in the formation and appearance of push moraines. Examples of the Canadian Arctic and Spitsbergen / Rainer Lehmann.

Title: The significance of permafrost in the formation and appearance of push moraines. Examples of the Canadian Arctic and Spitsbergen / Rainer Lehmann.
Author(s): Lehmann, Rainer.
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: Push moraine is ridge formed from sediments pushed or shoved along by advancing glacier. Development occurs in different environments; here, different Arctic conditions are examined: in Canada in continuous permafrost, where push moraine is formed by faulting and thrusting, and in Spitsbergen on coast, where it is formed by large-scale underpush of glacier ice beneath marine sediments. Morphological constitution of permafrost itself is changing due to stacking, deformation, degradation and growth.
