Record #154842:

The burial of ice in the proglacial environment on Bylot Island, Arctic Canada / Brian J. Moorman, Frederick A. Michel.

Title: The burial of ice in the proglacial environment on Bylot Island, Arctic Canada / Brian J. Moorman, Frederick A. Michel.
Author(s): Moorman, Brian J.
Michel, Frederick A.
Date: 2000.
In: Permafrost and Periglacial Processes. (2000.), Vol. 11(3) (2000)
Abstract: Discusses processes associated with burial of glacial, icing and permanent snow bank ice, with examples, together with thaw flow erosion. Some lateral and end moraines had cores of glacial ice over 10 m thick. Icing and permanent snow banks were not common because of their settings. Cold ground temperatures on Bylot Island preserve ground ice, though some recently exposed ice bodies started retrogressive thaw flows.
