Dendrogeomorphology as a tool to unravel snow-avalanche activity: preliminary results from the Fnjóskadalur test site, northern Iceland / Armelle Decaulne, Thorsteinn Saemundsson.

Title: Dendrogeomorphology as a tool to unravel snow-avalanche activity: preliminary results from the Fnjóskadalur test site, northern Iceland / Armelle Decaulne, Thorsteinn Saemundsson.
Author(s): Decaulne, Armelle.
Saemundsson, Thorsteinn.
Date: 2008.
In: Norsk Geografisk Tidsskrift. (2008.), Vol. 62(2) (2008)
Abstract: Examines potential of dendrogeomorphology and dendrochronology for research into mass movement in Iceland by using available hardwood stand, i.e. Betula pubescens. Focuses on lateral and vertical spreading of snow avalanches on colluvial cones dominated by snow-avalanche activity. Analyzes tree-ring data using ring-size chronology and wood reaction in snow-avalanche tracks subject to frequent avalanches. Finds abnormal growth correlated with abrupt increases or decreases in growth rate and related to avalanche impact. Uses data to construct spatial extent and frequency of snow avalanches in study area.
