Record #199382:

Geomorphic change in Canada's temperate mountains / Olav Slaymaker.

Title: Geomorphic change in Canada's temperate mountains / Olav Slaymaker.
Author(s): Slaymaker, Olav.
Date: 2012.
Publisher: Oxford: Wiley-Blackwell
In: Changing cold environments : a Canadian perspective. (2012.),
Abstract: Introduces "paraglacial" nature of Canada's temperate mountain landscape, in transition from glacial (both Pleistocene and Holocene "neoglacial") to periglacial conditions, with contemporary hydroclimate driving fluvial, periglacial and mass-movement processes at local scale. Describes present morphology and spatial variability, geoecology and ecological zones, sediment cascade, and morphometry. Discusses hydroclimate and cryospheric phenomena, distinguishing perhumid insular, moist maritime, temperate interior alpine, and temperate, dry interior mountain regions, and covering ice caps and glaciers, snow, permafrost, river and lake ice. Examines rates and kinds of geomorphic processes (mountain relief development, process measurement, weathering and slow mass movement, mass movement/fluvial transition, fluvial processes, basin sediment budgets, and process domain concept). Discusses disturbance regimes and landscape transitions, and likely increase in natural hazards.
