..., in subarctic northwest North America. However, new zircon U-Pb dates for the tephra suggest that the tephra was deposited ca. 207 ka during MIS 7, with wide-ranging implications for chronologies of glaciation, paleoclimate, relict permafrost, and phylogeography. We analyzed ~1900 detrital glass shards from 28...

...Yuxia Zhao; Kangqi Liu; Hongyan Liu; Hanhua Xu Abstract Under the action of freeze-thaw erosion, slopes in permafrost regions frequently suffer from geological disasters. The unique properties of soil-rock-mixture slopes further complicate this freeze-thaw stability problem. To study the effects...

... during the late Pleistocene to mid-Holocene. We modeled seven slope stability scenarios for the T440 landslide by varying water table position and seismic load. Our modeling results suggest that thawing permafrost and/or seismic loading were likely possible triggers for the T440 landslide. To our...
