Spatial associations between longest-lasting winter snow cover and cold region landforms in the high Drakensberg, southern Africa / Stefan W. Grab, Nicholas A. Mulder, Stephanie C. Mills.

Title: Spatial associations between longest-lasting winter snow cover and cold region landforms in the high Drakensberg, southern Africa / Stefan W. Grab, Nicholas A. Mulder, Stephanie C. Mills.

In: Geografiska Annaler. Series A. Physical Geography. (2009.), Vol. 91(2) (2009)
Abstract: Compares contemporary distributions of longest-lasting winter snow in high Drakensberg and active and relic cold region landforms. Evaluates importance of snow as environmental control influencing landform distribution and formation within different topographic settings. Uses two sets of 30-m resolution TM images and DEM to reveal geographic trends of snow patch depletion during late winter. Incorporates geomorphological phenomena with known coordinates into GIS, finding that several periglacial landforms (earth hummocks, stone- or turf-banked lobes, block deposits, large sorted patterned ground) coincide with topographic positions that limit snow accumulation. Strong association between longest-lasting snow patches and palaeo-moraines implies substantial snow accumulation at some high altitude south-facing sites during last glacial cycle.
