Record #137134:

Concertina eskers, Brícarjokull, Iceland: an indicator of surge-type glacier behaviour / Óskar Knudsen.

Title: Concertina eskers, Brícarjokull, Iceland: an indicator of surge-type glacier behaviour / Óskar Knudsen.
Author(s): Knudsen, Óskar.
Date: 1995.
In: Quaternary Science Reviews. (1995.), Vol. 14(5) (1995)
Abstract: During quiescent phases, water drainage takes place in ice-walled and roofed channels which produce eskers when the glacier retreats. During a surge they are deformed into concertina shapes.
Notes:

Quaternary Science Reviews. Vol. 14(5) :487-493 (1995).
