Micromorphology analysis of sediment samples from the Taylor Glacier snout to determine information on the microstructures and the process of formation of a moraine linear ridge
Entry ID: K042_1999_2000_NZ_2

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Three spatially variable micromorphology samples were taken from a discontinuous moraine linear ridge at the Taylor glacier snout to provide unknown information on the microstructures of this deposition feature and help resolve the processes behind its formation and hence identity. Additional samples were removed from the compact debris-laden basal layer of the Taylor glacier to allow in situ ... View entire text
