Record #185643:

Reconstitution de l'histoire paraglaciaire d'une marge glaciaire face aux changements climatiques: le cas du glacier Baron au Spitsberg / Samuel Etienne, Denis Mercier.

Title: Reconstitution de l'histoire paraglaciaire d'une marge glaciaire face aux changements climatiques: le cas du glacier Baron au Spitsberg / Samuel Etienne, Denis Mercier.
Translated title: Paraglacial history of a glacial margin facing global change: the Baronbreen case study, Spitsbergen.
Author(s): Etienne, Samuel.
Mercier, Denis.
Date: 2008.
Language: French.
In: Géographies : Bulletin de l'Association de Géographes Français. (2008.), Vol. 2 (2008)
Abstract: Examines effects of scaling on rhythms of deglaciation and sediment fluxes in a small catchment. Describes deglaciation in region of Svalbard containing Baronbreen since end of Little Ice Age, and stratigraphic evidence from proglacial sediments. Presents scenario for evolution of proglacial plain during 20th century and constructs relaxation curve for paraglacial sediment flux. Shows how paraglacial sequence, considered as a morphogenic crisis, can be affected by internal small threshold events able to mobilize large quantities of sediment, and that decrease of sediment yield with time is consequently more irregular than relaxation curve suggested by large scale models.
