Record #199291:

Rock strength and development of glacial valley morphology in the Scottish Highlands and Northwest Iceland / Martin S. Brook, Martin P. Kirkbride, Ben W. Brock.

Title: Rock strength and development of glacial valley morphology in the Scottish Highlands and Northwest Iceland / Martin S. Brook, Martin P. Kirkbride, Ben W. Brock.
Author(s): Brook, Martin S.
Kirkbride, Martin P.
Brock, Ben W.
Date: 2004.
In: Geografiska Annaler. Series A. Physical Geography. (2004.), Vol. 86(3) (2004)
Abstract: Examines correlations between bedrock strength measurements (point load strength index, Schmidt hammer rebound, rock unit weight, and rock mass strength) and three cross-profile indices of glaciated valley morphology. Results shows that interplay between bedrock mass strength and dynamics of eroding glacier is important control on valley morphological development: broad U-shaped valleys develop on closely jointed metasedimentary bedrock of low mass strength; and steeper sided valleys with narrower cross-profiles develop on igneous bedrock of high mass strength. Discusses applicability of b-FR model of valley development and implications for modelling of topographic development beneath ice sheets.
