Quantifying rates of ice-cored landform evolution in the high-Arctic

Activity: Academic Talks or PresentationsInvited talkResearch


Ice-cored moraines are commonly found at the margins of receding high-Arctic glaciers. Advances in our ability to detect and monitor surface change using high-resolution multi-temporal digital elevation models provides an opportunity to investigate rates and patterns of landform change. This talk will give an overview of research investigating landform evolution at deglaciating sites in the high-Arctic, linking raster-based surface change detection to geophysical datasets of moraine internal structure. This research highlights that spatially variable rates of change are controlled by both landform and site-specific characteristics.
