Record #172254:

New perspectives on autochthonous blockfield development / Jan Boelhouwers.

Title: New perspectives on autochthonous blockfield development / Jan Boelhouwers.
Author(s): Boelhouwers, Jan.
Date: 2004.
In: Polar Geography. (2004.), Vol. 28(2) (2004)
Abstract: Discusses primary mechanisms of bedrock break-up and block production in formation of autochthonous blockfields. Critically evaluates traditional allocation of freeze-thaw weathering and proposes more complex synergy of processes. Including observations from outside cold regions, challenges view of frost weathering as dominant process in blockfield development. Emphasises alternative hypothesises involving such processes as chemical weathering and thermal stress, with bedrock fractures a prerequisite not outcome of frost action.
