Geomorphic change in northern Canada / Hugh French.

Title: Geomorphic change in northern Canada / Hugh French.
Author(s): French, Hugh.
Date: 2012.
Publisher: Oxford: Wiley-Blackwell
In: Changing cold environments : a Canadian perspective. (2012.),
Abstract: Briefly discusses models of cold-climate landscape evolution, recent recognition of range of azonal processes effective in periglacial environments, and "paraglacial" nature of northern Canada, adjusted to neither LGM nor contemporary conditions and geomorphic processes. Discusses geologic lessons from past cold-climate landscape modification, particularly Late Pleistocene, and their application to a potentially warmer northern Canada. Discusses: processes of freezing, thawing and bedrock instability, and warming permafrost; changes in azonal processes (coastal processes and changing sea-ice conditions, and drainage network response to warming climate); and geotechnical implications of warming permafrost, particularly at sites of economic activity and resource development, where anthropogenic thermokarst, thaw consolidation and loss of ground bearing strength may become serious concerns.
