The effect of detachment sliding on surface wash erosion in the continuous permafrost zone, Hot Weather Creek, Fosheim Peninsula, Ellesmere Island, Northwest Territories.

Steven V. Kokelj
An experimental design was developed to evaluate the effect of active-layer detachment sliding on surface wash erosion. Specifically, the aim was to examine to what extent the disturbance of vegetation cover, changes in hydrological conditions due to topographic modification by detachment sliding and the formation of a fresh active layer affect rates of surface wash erosion. Detachment slides generally accumulated more snow than adjacent slopes and yielded greater amounts of surface runoff than vegetated slopes...
