Record #135486:

Holocene climate fluctuations and geomorphic impact of extreme events in Svalbard / Marie-Françoise André.

Title: Holocene climate fluctuations and geomorphic impact of extreme events in Svalbard / Marie-Françoise André.
Author(s): André, Marie-Françoise,
Date: 1995.
In: Geografiska Annaler. Series A. Physical Geography. (1995.), Vol. 77A(4) (1995)
Abstract: Geomorphological investigations, detailed mapping and lichen surveys at 27 sites in Spitsbergen provide new insight into history of major slush streams and debris flows. Recurrence intervals are estimated at 80-500 yr for debris flows and c. 500 yr for slush avalanches, consistent with cases in other Scandinavian mountains. Flows seem to have replaced pressure release and frost mechanisms as main cause of morphogenesis in Arctic.
