Record #202876:

Subglacial environments, sediments and landforms at the margins of Mýrdalsjökull / Anders Schomacker, Kurt H. Kjaer, Johannes Krüger.

Title: Subglacial environments, sediments and landforms at the margins of Mýrdalsjökull / Anders Schomacker, Kurt H. Kjaer, Johannes Krüger.
Author(s): Schomacker, Anders.
Kjaer, Kurt H.
Krüger, Johannes.
Date: 2010.
Publisher: London: Elsevier
In: Mýrdalsjökull ice cap, Iceland : glacial processes, sediments and landforms on an active volcano. (2010.),
Abstract: Reviews subglacial environments, sediments and landforms at Mýrdalsjökull and its outlet glaciers, focusing on effects of volcanic activity on glacial processes, and areas of Sléttjökull, Kötlujökull and Sólheimajökull in particular. Covers: large-scale subglacial topography, present-day subglacial meltwater drainage, and sedimentary evidence of past drainage; and tills, mode of subglacial transport, till sheet architecture, landform interpretation and significance for subglacial processes, and interactions between subglacial and supraglacial environments. Also presents idealised sequential model for marginal-subglacial-proglacial landsystem in front of Sléttjökull, describing development of present stratigraphy relative to glacier dynamics and landscape.
