Canadian river scientists made significant contributions to the early development (1960-80) of fluvial facies models, particularly to those for braided rivers. More recent Canadian studies (1980-92) have centred on understanding the facies sedimentology of anastomosed and wandering gravel-bed...
Aeolian environments in Canada experience seasonally cold temperatures. The portion of the annual wind transport occurring between late autumn and early spring usually is perceived as trivial because low temperature transport is difficult to measure reliably, particularly in remote northern...
Numerous recent studies on fluvial processes, both in Canada and internationally, have focused on small-scale phenomena. Investigations on the characterization of surface roughness in coarse-grained channels and its links with flow resistance and sediment transport processes have been a dominant...
Uplands of the Canadian Arctic Islands supported Late Wisconsinan ice caps that developed two landscape zones reflecting basal thermal conditions regulated by long-sustained ice flow patterns. Central cold-based zones protected older glacial and preglacial landscapes while peripheral warm-based...
Studies of contemporary patterns of erosion in the glaciated and largely undisturbed Canadian landscape reveal spatial patterns that do not conform to the conventional concepts of drainage basin sediment delivery. In particular stream and valley side sediment sources dominate over erosion of the...
Recent Canadian research on permafrost is reviewed, concentrating on permafrost- climate relations, the processes of thermokarst, ice-wedge development, frost heave and soil convection, and ground ice studies. This field of geomorphology is often of direct interest to engineers and managers of...
Canada includes active convergent and strike-slip plate boundaries, several major mountain systems, two passive continental margins, and a stable craton. Neotectonic activity, as indicated by earthquake occurrence, is highest along the west coast and lowest in the interior of the country....
This review focuses on recent Canadian contributions to hillslope geomorphology, and emphasizes geotechnical studies of mass movement phenomena in the Canadian Cordillera, including debris flows, rock avalanches, talus slopes, rock creep, and slow earthflows. A brief discussion is included of...
