About this book

Explores a variety of contemporary geomorphic processes such as pingos, nivation, ground ice, palsas, frost related and mass wasting procedures as well as paleoenvironmental studies.


Periglacial geomorphology - what? where? when?, C.E. Thorn; origin of certain high-elevation local broad uplands in the Central Appalachians south of the glacial border, U.S.A. - a paleoperiglacial hypothesis, G. Michael Clark and James Hedges; spatial patterns of geochemical denudation in a Colorado alpine environment, Nel Caine; the zonation of freeze-thaw temperatures at a glacier headwall, Dome Glacier, Canadian Rockies, James S. Gardner; mechanical weathering in the Antarctic - a maritime perspective, Kevin J. Hall; miniature sorted stripes in the Paramo de Piedras Blancas (Venezuelan Andes), Francisco L. Perez; a model of water movement in rock glaciers and associated water characteristics, John R. Giardino et al; snow-avalanche paths - conduits from the periglacial-alpine to the subalpine-depositional zone, David R. Butler et al; long-term rates of contemporary solifluction in the Canadian Rocky mountains, D.J. Smith; factors influencing the distribution and initiation of active-layer detachment slides on Ellesmere Island, Arctic Canada, Antoni G. Lewkowicz; buoyancy forces induced by freeze-thaw in the active layer - implications for diapirism and soil circulation, Bernard Hallet and Edwin D. Waddington; palsa-scale frost mounds, Frederick E.
