Record #191467:

Raised gravel beaches as proxy indicators of past sea-ice and wave conditions, Lowther Island, Canadian Arctic archipelago / Dominique St-Hilaire-Gravel, Trevor J. Bell, Donald L. Forbes.

Title: Raised gravel beaches as proxy indicators of past sea-ice and wave conditions, Lowther Island, Canadian Arctic archipelago / Dominique St-Hilaire-Gravel, Trevor J. Bell, Donald L. Forbes.
Author(s): St-Hilaire-Gravel, Dominique.
Bell, Trevor J.

Date: 2010.
In: Arctic. (2010.), Vol. 63(2) (2010)
Abstract: Investigates whether raised beach sequences preserved on emergent coasts of central Canadian Arctic Archipelago contain proxy record of past sea-ice condition and wave intensity. Hypothesises that periods of reduced sea ice (increased open water) expose shorelines to more prolonged and higher wave energy, leading to better-developed beach ridges. Surveys of raised beach sequences on Lowther Island reveal various distinctive patterns, which can be interpreted as resulting from particular "wave climates" and thus from summer sea-ice conditions.
