  • The aim of this work is to 1) characterise the geomorphology of the sackung features in the El Ubago Valley, 2) infer the kinematic history of the trenched sackung constraining the timing of its initiation and subsequent displacement, and 3) compare
  • these results with the poorly constrained available glacial chronologies and with those obtained from the Vallibierna and Estós sites.

  • Use of soil chronosequences for testing the existence of high-water-level lakes in the McMurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica
  • The AA. utilize field observations and data collected from 190 pedons from Wright and Taylor Valleys to search for evidence of high-water-level lakes proposed to have existed during the last Glacial Maximum and early Holocene in the McMurdo Dry
  • Valleys. The results cast doubt as to whether high-level lakes existed in the McMurdo Dry Valley as recently as the early Holocene. An alternative explanation is that the former lakes had no effects on soils other than depositing deltas with cyanobacteria

  • Suspended sediment dynamics in the Morteratsch pro-glacial zone, Bernina Alps, Switzerland
  • daily mean river flow records. The Morteratsch valley is located in the Bernina massif, within the eastern part of the Swiss Alps. Suspended sediment concentration measured during July 2007 was closely associated with discharge. The results emphasise
  • the rapid change in suspended sediment transport and yields with distance from the glacier snout and highlight the importance of measurements as close to the glacier snout as possible if data are to be representative of the glaciated land up-valley. A better

  • , but along natural river corridors both driftwood dynamics and tree reproductive strategies can have a dramatic impact on the style and rate of channel and floodplain development. Therefore, the AA. believe that interpretations of the post-glacial history
  • of river valleys across the northern temperate climatic zone could be usefully reassessed, incorporating the roles of riparian trees.

  • The chronology and long term dynamics of a low energy river system : the Kelvin Valley, central Scotland
  • This report provides new radiocarbon (C 14) dated sediment stratigraphic data from a third aggrading low energy fluvial system in Scotland, in the upper reaches of the Kelvin Valley in central Scotland to clarify the chronology and dynamism
  • of fluvial and valley forming events and to explore cause in sediment generation. It suggests that aggradation is an early-mid-Holocene phenomenon in these paraglacial valleys, and observes that in the Kelvin Valley, as in the Milfield basin, sedimentation

  • Meteorological controls on sand transport and changes in dune morphology were monitored for 11 days in November-December 2004 on a barchan dune in the Victoria Valley, McMurdo Dry Valleys. Sand transport in this environment was found
  • to be influenced by, 1) interparticle cohesion (ice-bonding); 2) diurnal variations in the speed of thermally driven easterly valley winds due to reduce solar heating by night; and 3) topographically modified foehn southwesterly winds. Warm, dry and gusty foehn
  • southwesterly winds were found to promote aeolian processes by dislodging surface sediments, with dune morphology responding rapidly. As a result, change in the morphology of the dunes of the Victoria Valley may provide an early indication of change in regional

  • Time-transgressive tunnel valley formation indicated by infill sediment structure, North Sea - the role of glaciohydraulic supercooling
  • Structure and lithology of the infill sediments from 16 subglacial buried tunnel valleys of Pleistocene age in the North Sea were analyzed using 3D seismic data and geophysical log data from 5 hydrocarbon exploration wells. The infill sediments
  • are characterized by 3 seismic facies. A model for the formation of these typical sediment successions is proposed in which valley incision and infill are causally linked. This model is based on the theory of glaciohydraulic supercooling beneath ice-sheet margins
