Haeberli, Wilfried; Hallet, B; Arenson, L; Elconin, R; Humlum, O; Kääb, Andreas; Kaufmann, V; Ladanyi, B; Matsuoka, N; Springman, S; Mühll, D V (2006). Permafrost creep and rock glacier dynamics. Permafrost and Periglacial Processes, 17(3):189-214.

Abstract

Final report of the Task Force on Permafrost Creep and Rock Glacier Dynamics. This Task Force was established in 1998 by the International Permafrost Association (IPA) and the International Commission on Snow and Ice (ICSI; now the Commission on Cryospheric Sciences, CCS) with Wilfried Haeberli and Bernard Hallet as co-chairs in order: (1) to define the state of knowledge relevant to the flow and evolution of perennially frozen ice/rock mixtures; and (2) to provide an overview of ongoing studies that obtain quantitative information from drilling, geophysical soundings, geodetic/photogrammetric monitoring and measurements of surface conditions. For this purpose, a special half-day workshop took place on 27 March 2001 within the framework of the First European Permafrost Conference in Rome, Italy (Rea, §). Further discussions followed during and after the 8th International Conference on Permafrost in Zurich (20–25 July 2003). The present contribution is based on the corresponding results and constitutes the final product of the Task Force. The following colleagues served as lead authors of the main subsections in this report: thermal conditions: Ole Humlum (surface, active layer) and Daniel Vonder Mühll (boreholes); composition: Norikazu Matsuoka (rocks) and Roger Elconin (ice); geometry/kinematics: Andreas Kääb and Viktor Kaufmann (photogrammetry, geodesy); and rheology: Sarah Springman, Lukas Arenson (mountains) and Branko Ladanyi (lowlands).

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
