Analysis of flute forming conditions using ice sheet reconstructions and field techniques

Auteurs :
HUBBARD, T.D.

Description :
Basal shear stress and sediment strength associated with the development of glacial flutes exposed during the 20th century in the Saskatchewan Glacier Valley Alberta, Canada, were determined by comparing reconstructed ice thickness, basal shear stresses, and field properties of sediments with the morphologically similar Kiwa Glacier Valley, British Columbia, Canada, where flutes are absent. Reconstructed subglacial conditions in these 2 valleys were compared to understand why flutes were developed in the former and not the latter.
