Record #185651:

After the ice: Holocene geomorphic activity in the Scottish Highlands / Colin Kerr Ballantyne.

Title: After the ice: Holocene geomorphic activity in the Scottish Highlands / Colin Kerr Ballantyne.
Author(s): Ballantyne, Colin Kerr.
Date: 2008.
In: Scottish Geographical Journal. (2008.), Vol. 124(1) (2008)
Abstract: Reviews post-glacial landscape development of Scottish Highlands, showing that whilst many process other than glaciation have modified landscape, most can be described as glacially-conditioned, or "paraglacial". Discusses paraglacial concept, in which glacial retreat exposes metastable sediment sources that are reworked over a range of timescales, with much of sediment deposited in paraglacial sediment stores before transport to ultimate sinks. Reviews exhaustion model for paraglacial sediment release. Examines in turn adjustment of rock slopes, modification of drift-mantled slopes, Holocene alluvial history, geomorphic effects of wind action, and periglacial processes on high ground. Compares paraglacial landscape development with effects of exceptional rainstorms and accelerated activity due to human interference.
