Record #139554:

The influence of topography on snowpatch distribution in southern Iceland: a new hypothesis for glacier formation? / Ian Brown ; Rod Ward.

Title: The influence of topography on snowpatch distribution in southern Iceland: a new hypothesis for glacier formation? / Ian Brown ; Rod Ward.
Author(s): Brown, Ian,
Ward, Rod.
Date: 1996.
In: Geografiska Annaler. Series A. Physical Geography. (1996.), Vol. 78A(4) (1996)
Abstract: Observations on snowpatches allowed the authors to examine the distinction between initial glaciation and re-glaciation. Young volcanic landscapes were used, with high resolution remote sensing techniques with some fieldwork. Topography is shown to control the distibution of snowpatches, and implies a rethink of the models of glacier development on unglaciated terrain. Consideration is also given to thermally hot areas of Iceland.
