Le réajustement des versants islandais en contexte de déglaciation rapide: les marges glaciaires du Sud-Est de l'Islande / Marie Chenet.

Title: Le réajustement des versants islandais en contexte de déglaciation rapide: les marges glaciaires du Sud-Est de l'Islande / Marie Chenet.
Translated title: Readjustment of Icelandic slopes in a glacial retreat context: the glacier margins of south-east Iceland.
Author(s): Chenet, Marie.
Date: 2008.
Language: French.
In: Géographies : Bulletin de l'Association de Géographes Français. (2008.), Vol. 2 (2008)
Abstract: Examines adjustment of ice-marginal slopes to deglaciation in Øraefi region of south-east Iceland. Summarizes retreats since Little Ice Age of Skeidarárjökull, Morsárjökull, Skaftafellsjökull and Svinafelljökull and describes associated evolution of rocky slopes at glacier margins. Identifies variable response timescales and styles of readjustment, involving post-glacial decompression, periglacial processes such as gelifraction, debris flows, weathering, and jökulhlaups that tend to erase the effects of more progressive processes. Argues that understanding deglaciating landscapes requires evaluations of climate processes in a specific morpho-structural context and paraglacial dynamics.
