Record #29456:

Exfoliation joints and ice action / Walter Brian Harland.

Title: Exfoliation joints and ice action / Walter Brian Harland.
Author(s): Harland, Walter Brian.
Date: 1957.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1957.), Vol. 3(21) (1957)
Abstract: Summarizes some generally accepted views on joints in rocks. Lewis's pressure release hypothesis is assessed in relation thereto. Additional hypothesis is suggested whereby existing stress system in rocks due to removal of overburden which would favour exfoliation, would be augmented by freezing of saturated rock when ice retreats, so triggering this type of extension joint.
Notes:

Journal of Glaciology. Vol. 3(21) :8-10 (1957).
