Turf-banked terraces in Öraefi, south-east Iceland: morphometry, rates of movement and environmental controls / Terry D. Douglas, Stephan Harrison.

Title: Turf-banked terraces in Öraefi, south-east Iceland: morphometry, rates of movement and environmental controls / Terry D. Douglas, Stephan Harrison.
Author(s): Douglas, Terry D.
Harrison, Stephan.
Date: 1996.
In: Arctic and Alpine Research. (1996.), Vol. 28(2) (1996)
Abstract: Small-scale terraces are common on shallow slopes above Neoglacial trimlines of Öraefi outlet glaciers. Terraces have vegetated riser and bare tread. Rates of movement were measured over 2-year period, with maximum of 11 mm/yr. Environmental controls on development of terraces are discussed.
