Glacial geomorphology: modeling processes and landforms.
YOUNG, NATHANIEL,JOSEPH,PETER (2009) Glacial Geomorphology of southern Alberta, Canada. Masters thesis, Durham University. Preview. PDF 11Mb: Abstract. During deglaciation from the Last Glacial Maximum three terrestrial ice streams within the south western sector of the Laurentide Ice Sheet competed and coalesced in southern Alberta; the High Plains Ice Stream (HPIS), Central Alberta Ice.

PhD; Research; People; Department; Glacial Geomorphology. Glaciation leaves behind a variety of bedforms on the Earth surface. Part of my research explores how they form, with an aim to reconstruct the conditions of past ice flow using them and to learn something about the processes that operate at the glacier bed. The following images show two examples which I have studied. When sediment.

Landform studies and glacial sediment inventories, glacial geomorphology remains a rich and vibrant science. Much Much remains to be discovered, re-assessed and new avenues of research pursued.
Glacier morphology, or the form a glacier takes, is influenced by temperature, precipitation, topography, and other factors. The goal of glacial morphology is to gain a better understanding of glaciated landscapes, and the way they are shaped. Types of glaciers can range from massive ice sheets, such as the Greenland ice sheet, to small cirque glaciers found perched on mountain tops.

We here present a glacial geomorphological map covering 11,800 km2, at a scale of 1:550,000, of the central sector of the last (Main Late Devensian) British-Irish Ice Sheet. The map is based on the 5 m resolution NEXTMap dataset. Six landform types have been mapped; subglacial lineations, hummocky terrain, ribbed moraine, meltwater channels, eskers and glaciofluvial sediment accumulations.

Research: Glacial Geomorphology. Project: Glacier dynamics and erosion patterns over the last glacial cycle: implications for reconstructing Alpine paleo-climatic conditions. Mountain topography and landforms reflect the interplay between geodynamic, climatic and erosion processes at the Earth’s surface. In that context, the progressive cooling of the Earth’s climate during the last.
Geomorphology is the study of the processes that have shaped the Earth’s surface. At UBC, research in geomorphology is focussed on fluvial processes and landforms, particularly in mountainous regions, and on glacial processes and Quaternary landscape history. An emerging research direction in our geomorphology program involves studying the interaction between the various geomorphic processes.
The area provides opportunities for detailed glacial geomorphology, sedimentology and micropaleontogical work, from which a very high-resolution study on climate change spanning the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) through to the present was able to be reconstructed. The geomorphology reveals a complex glacial history spanning multiple glaciations.
This thesis presents the development and application of a grid-based mapping approach that provides an efficient solution to the problems of mapping small landforms over large areas. The approach allows the cataloguing of landform classes, of multiple sizes, efficiently in a single pass. The speed at which the data could be recorded allowed for the first continuous, full resolution mapping of.
Outside of my PhD work, I am interested in glacial geomorphology and palaeo-ice sheet reconstruction of the British-Irish Ice Sheet, as well as broader, global palaeo-glaciology and its imprints on our land and continental shelves. I am also interested in geological records of extreme wave events such as storm surges and tsunami deposits. I am also interested in evolution of pore pressure and.
Philip submitted and successfully defended his PhD thesis in 2004.. Philip specialises in glacial geomorphology, glacial sedimentology and glaciology and their application in reconstructing past glacial environments and associated climates. Other specialisms include pollen analysis and Uranium-series dating. Philip trained at the Open University Uranium Series Facility in Milton Keynes.
