  • Paleomagnetic evidence for repeated glacial Lake Missoula floods from sediments of the Sanpoil River valley, northeastern Washington
  • Recent explanations of widespread rhytmically layered sediments in eastern Washington as the result of repeated great floods from glacial Lake Missoula implicitly suggest a paleomagnetic test for validity. This work is an application

  • Pleistocene glaciation of the King Valley, Western Tasmania, Australia
  • The objectives of this study were to describe the character and extent of the Pleistocene deposits, to establish the number and periods of glaciation, to reevaluate the existing Pleistocene stratigraphy, and to compare the glacial events with those

  • This paper presents results of a palynological analysis of a 15.5 m sediment core from Lake Naivasha. The core spans a little more than the last 20,000 years. The record is long enough to include the last glacial maximum in temperate latitudes

  • In this paper surface deformation of Last Glacial fluvial aggradation surfaces along the western edge of the Wairarapa Valley is described in terms of slip rates along the Wairarapa Fault over the last 60 ka or so.

  • This paper describes the detailed morphology of one channel system in Sessrumir valley, western Asgard Range. It provides the opportunity to study both the caracteristic channel and pothole forms, and their interrelationship with a detailed
  • and evolving glacial chronology of the area. The approach involved the compilation of a geomorphological map of the system, based on vertical aerial photographs enlarged to a scale of around 1:10,000 and field checking, and a survey of characteristic features

  • Late glacial aeolian processes in the light of sediment analysis from Kamion profile near Wyszogród
  • Analysis of sediments from the Kamion locality in the Vistula valley near Wyszogród was carried out in order to gain more information about the fluvial and predominantly aeolian environments of sedimentation and weathering. Basing upon

  • Flat-floored depressions without traces of paleomeanders occur frequently on the Vistula flood plain within the Sandomierz Basin. One of this, the Drwień depression extends along the southern Vistula valley side between Cracow and Niepołomice
  • . In the depression survived channel deposits laid down by the braided Vistula during the Late Glacial. In the western part the sandy-gravel deposits underlie a thin layer of peats in the eastern part the Younger Dryas and Preboreal channel deposits occur. Since

  • Automated recognition of valley heads from digital elevation models
  • An automated technique for recognizing valley heads from digital elevation models is presented. The technique has been developed for valley head recognition because valley heads are known locations of geomorphological activity and because areal
  • features have been largely ignored in the automated landform recognition literature. The problem of valley head recognition is divided into valley head location and valley head delineation, and the technique is developed using a DEM representing a simple

  • This is a new synthesis of the evolution of the section of the Vistula river valley. There are changes in the channel patterns and parameters, sedimentological characteristics of the different alluvial deposits of different ages, the reflection
  • of both climatic fluctuation and human activity in the valley floor morphology and in alluvia. - (DG)

  • Morphotectonics of the Baikal rift valley, Eastern Siberia, USSR
  • The Baikal rift valley, the central segment of the Baikal rift zone located in southern East Siberia, consists of two large depressions separated by an interdepressional uplift. The interdepressional uplift consists of subsiding residual steps
  • and active tilted horsts. The large dimensions of the Baikal rift valley are evidently due to its being confined to the faults striking NE-SW.

  • Nivation hollows and valleys in the fossil coast cliff Landborgen at Helsingborg, South Sweden
  • Most of the main nivation hollows and valleys are older than the last phase of the Weichselian glaciation as indicated by the fact that they contain till or morainic boulders from the north eastern ice, the main ice stream in Skåne during the last
  • glaciation. Hydro-thermal water has made hollows and rill water small valleys in the cliff where the nivation processes begun. The nivation processes were caused by drifting snow from the east during the Weichselian.
