Record #171503:

Sediment thickness and Holocene erosion rates derived from a seismic survey of Hvítárvatn, central Iceland / Jessica Black, Gifford Miller, Áslaug Geirsdóttir, Helgi Björnsson.

Title: Sediment thickness and Holocene erosion rates derived from a seismic survey of Hvítárvatn, central Iceland / Jessica Black, Gifford Miller, Áslaug Geirsdóttir, Helgi Björnsson.
Author(s): Black, Jessica.
Miller, Gifford.

Björnsson, Helgi.
Date: 2004.
In: Jökull. (2004.), Vol. 54 (2004)
Abstract: Over 100 km of reflection profiles from glacier-dominated lake show over 65 m of stratified post-glacial sediment. Five diagnostic units, defined by acoustic properties tied to lithostratigraphic breaks in cores, can be traced throughout fill. Maps of these show significant changes in primary sediemnt delivery systems through Holocene, with changes in size and position of Langjökull. Erosion rates are calculated.
