Drumlin relief is a key parameter for testing predictions of models of drumlin formation. Although this metric is commonly described in textbooks as being of the order of a fewtens ofmetres, our critical review of the ...
Spatial patterns of North Atlantic Oscillation influence on mass balance variability of European glaciers
(Copernicus Publications, 2012-06-14)
We present and validate a set of minimal models of glacier mass balance variability. The most skillful model is then applied to reconstruct 7735 individual time series of mass balance variability for all glaciers in the ...
Seafloor expression and shallow structure of a surfacing fold-and-thrust system: an example from Isfjorden, West Spitsbergen
(Norwegian Polar Institute, 2012)
A detailed map of the structure of the West Spitsbergen Fold-and-Thrust Belt in the shallow part of the Isfjorden area, Spitsbergen, is presented. The map was constructed from a new dense grid of 2D multichannel reflection ...
Modeling compaction effects on the elastic properties of clay-water composites
(Society of Exploration Geophysicists, 2012-09)
Modeling the elastic properties of clay-bearing rocks (shales) requires thorough knowledge of the mineral constituents, their elastic properties, pore space microstructure, and orientations of clay platelets. Information ...
