  • Pared-down landscapes in Antarctica

    Cotton, C.A.; Wilson, A.T. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    The frigid-arid climate that now prevails in ice-free parts of Victoria Land, Antarctica, inhibits glacial erosion. If certain landscapes, more or less remote from the great troughs of outlet glaciers, have been glaciated ...
  • Soil crusting in Western Samoa. Part I - Some examples of crusting and methods of control

    Reynolds, S.G. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    The problems and effects of soil crusting in Western Samoa are discussed. Illustrations of typical crust features include the glazed or 'frosted' surface of certain crusts, and dispersion mosaics. Surface mulches and fine ...
  • Soil crusting in Western Samoa. Part II - Experimental investigation of factors influencing crust formation

    Reynolds, S.G. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    The Alafua Penetrometer was used to measure relative differences in soil crust strength. Crust strength and thickness were shown to increase with increases in rainfall amount, drying time, droplet size, kinetic energy and ...
  • Dynamic equilibrium in applied geomorphology: Two case studies

    Douglas, Ian (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    Engineering works and agricultural activity which change the relationship between rainfall and river flow lead to modifications of river channels with attendant erosion and deposition problems. In the Swiss Jura Lakes area, ...
  • Origin and distribution of mineral species in limestone caves

    Broughton, Paul L. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    More than 80 mineral species are known to result from secondary chemical reactions in solutional limestone caverns. These minerals are transitional and end-products of carbonate wall rock interactions with ground water and ...
