Record #199950:

Morphology and development of ice patches in Northwest Territories, Canada / Thomas Meulendyk, and 3 others.

Title: Morphology and development of ice patches in Northwest Territories, Canada / Thomas Meulendyk, and 3 others.
Author(s): Meulendyk, Thomas.
Date: 2012.
In: Arctic. (2012.), Vol. 65 (supp. 1) (2012)
Abstract: Reports use of ground-penetrating radar and ice coring to examine stratigraphy and internal structure of two ice patches. Results show that patches are composed of core of distinct offset units, up to several metres thick, covered by blanket of firn and snow. Interfaces between units of ice are often demarcated by thin sections of frozen caribou dung and fine sediment. Radiocarbon dates of dung extracted from cores have revealed long history for perennial patches, up to 4,400 years BP.
Notes:

Arctic. Vol. 65 (supp. 1) :43-58 (2012).

In special issue The archaeology and paleoecology of alpine ice patches.
