Late Quaternary moraines along the Sekhokong range, eastern Lesotho: contrasting the geomorphic history on north- and south-facing slopes / Stephanie C. Mills, Stefan W. Grab, Simon J. Carr.

Title: Late Quaternary moraines along the Sekhokong range, eastern Lesotho: contrasting the geomorphic history on north- and south-facing slopes / Stephanie C. Mills, Stefan W. Grab, Simon J. Carr.

Date: 2009.
In: Geografiska Annaler. Series A. Physical Geography. (2009.), Vol. 91(2) (2009)
Abstract: Combines geomorphological and macro- and micro-scale sedimentological techniques to determine process origins of deposits along Sekhokong south-facing slopes in high Drakensberg (most Quaternary environmental reconstructions have focused on northern aspects of range). Presents data for two linear debris ridges, identifying them as probable moraines from small niche glacier. Obtains AMS ages of 14,700 and 19,350 cal. yrs BP to place deposits around Last Glacial Maximum. Discusses contrasting aspect-controlled palaeogeomorphological environments along Sekhekong range, reflected in dissimilar contemporary biophysical micro-environments. Suggests that south-facing slopes were dominated by glacial processes during Last Glacial Maximum, and rejects previous interpretations of north-facing hollows as glacial cirques.
