Tab. 1: Approximate dimension of the pingos, supplement to: Zoltai, S C (1983): Pingos on Bylot Island, N.W.T., Canada. Polarforschung, 53(2), 43-48S C Zoltai
A group of nine pingos occurs in the valley of a glacial meltwater river. The pingos rise from a plain of low-center polygons. Some pingos have a typical cone shape, but others are linear, apparently centered on ice wedges . The occurrence of most pingos at the junction of oversize ice wedge polygon ridges suggests that the injection of water and the segregation of ice occurred along pathways provided by the ice wedges.
