Record #144350:

Active layer thermal regime at three rock glaciers in Greenland / Ole Humlum.

Title: Active layer thermal regime at three rock glaciers in Greenland / Ole Humlum.
Author(s): Humlum, Ole.
Date: 1997.
In: Permafrost and Periglacial Processes. (1997.), Vol. 8(4) (1997)
Abstract: Two glaciers are talus-derived and one is glacier-derived. Thermal characteristics of very coarse grained active layer are described and compared with those of other types of active layer. Conductive and non-conductive heat transfer seem to be important on both types. In general, coarse surface seems to act as thermal filter, which may explain why rock glaciers tend to be more frequent in dry continental areas.
