Antarctic environments and resources : a geographical perspective by J. D Hansom( Book )

4 editions published between 1998 and 2017 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Antarctica is no longer a 'pole apart'. From a scientific perspective, the Antarctic ice sheet, ocean and climate systems are intimately linked with the global climate and are now seen to be of international significance for understanding climate change. From an economic perspective, the Antarctic is perceived to have great potential as a source of marine resources although the extent of speculated mineral and hydrocarbon resources is unknown. From a conservation perspective, the continent of Antarctica represents the ideal image of unspoiled wilderness. Antarctic Environments and R

The Quaternary of Scotland by J. E Gordon( Book )

9 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In describing the geomorphological heritage of Scotland, this volume offers a remarkable account of how the natural environment responded in terms of landforms, processes and plant communities, to severe climatic change as the Quaternary era progressed over the last two million years. This legacy, as preserved in the 138 nationally important GCR sites described, documents a remarkable diversity of landforms in a relatively small area. The rugged highland contrast with the rolling hills and flat plains found further south, while the western and northern islands, together with the highly-indented coastline add further to the scenic diversity. How this variety of landscapes came into being, the forces which shaped it, and the climatic extremes which drove it, are the themes explored in this volume

Aspects of glacial erosion in parts of Inverness-shire and Ross-shire, northern Scotland by J. E Gordon( Book )

3 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The distribution of ice-scoured landscapes correlates with zones of basal ice melting as reconstructed for a Pleistocene Scottish ice sheet. Areas of no apparent ice sheet erosion are associated with a zone of basal ice freezing. The morphological and morphometric characteristics of ice-scoured landscapes and landforms are more closely- related to bedrock lithology and structure, in particular to patterns of bedding plane strikes and dips, joints and faults, than to ice-movement directions . Where the latter were perpendicular to the strike of bedrock structures dipping up-ice, hierarchies of typical roche moutonnee forms are developed with plucked and cliffed lee-side facets. However, where the ice flow direction and the strike of the structures were sub-parallel, the plucked and cliffed facets occur parallel to the former. In some massive rocks fresh fracturing of the bedrock may occur on the lee sides of obstacles and is thought to be related to a process of glacier crushing. The correlation structure of a number of cirque morphometric variables indicates that as cirque size increases, the degree of enclosure in plan, profile and overall dimensions increases. Also length tends to increase relative to amplitude, but' length to breadth ratio remains relatively constant. A space-time transformation suggests that dimensional cirque equilibrium forms are not present. However, dimensionless equilibrium forms appear to be developed in plan and also at an overall level. Cirque headwall retreat proceeds slightly faster than downcutting, but there is no evidence for widespread landscape destruction by cirque erosion. The form of the pre-glacial relief may be more important in explaining variationa in the character of cirque landscapes. Variations in cirque morphometry tend to be a function of local-scale factors, in particular the maximum altitude of the area draining into each cirque
