Composition and internal structures of a rock glacier on the strandflat of western Spitsbergen / Herman Farbrot, Ketil Isaksen, Trond Eiken, Andreas Kääb, Johan Ludvig Sollid.

Title: Composition and internal structures of a rock glacier on the strandflat of western Spitsbergen / Herman Farbrot, Ketil Isaksen, Trond Eiken, Andreas Kääb, Johan Ludvig Sollid.
Author(s): Farbrot, Herman.
Isaksen, Ketil.
Eiken, Trond.
Kääb, Andreas.
Sollid, Johan Ludvig.
Date: 2005.
In: Norsk Geografisk Tidsskrift. (2005.), Vol. 59(2) (2005)
Abstract: Presents data on composition and internal structures of large lobe-shaped glacier at Nordenskiöldkysten, based on ground penetrating radar (GPR) and DC resistivity tomography measurements. GPR indicates quite chaotic structural pattern, far more complicated than other Svalbard rock glaciers investigated. Ice-rich conditions are indicated. Active layer is thicker in dumps than below ridges. Surface velocities above c.1 cm a⁻¹ were found only in southernmost talus slope. Attributes apparent standstill to low gradient as rock glacier flows onto strandflat. Compares with previous results, particularly from similar lobe-shaped glaciers and tongue-shaped rock glaciers in Svalbard. In special issue Permafrost geomporphological systems in a changing global climate, edited by Ole Humlun and Ketil Isaksen.
