Record #144634:

The periglacial environment of Plateau Mountain: overview of current periglacial research / Stuart A. Harris, Angélique Prick.

Title: The periglacial environment of Plateau Mountain: overview of current periglacial research / Stuart A. Harris, Angélique Prick.
Author(s): Harris, Stuart A.
Prick, Angélique.
Date: 1997.
In: Polar Geography. (1997.), Vol. 21(2) (1997)
Abstract: Shows Plateau Mountain, southwest Alberta, Canada, has relict permafrost on its summit not yet in equilibrium with present climate. Alpine vegetation suggests migration of alpine floras during past cold events. Discusses heat flow effect on location.
