A N Rudoy, V R Baker. Sedimentary effects of cataclysmic late Pleistocene glacial outburst flooding.

Inya-logoНа эту нашу с Виком Бейкером статью, которая вышла почти 20 лет назад - уже сотни ссылок в самых разнообразных изданиях, как и на статью в журнале Science (1993). Можно говорить, что регулярные международные экспедиции и изучение скэбленда во всем мире началось именно вот с этих первых наших работ в международной периодике. До этого я писал в СССР по-русски и, по сути, - для себя. Потому полагаю эту пионерную статью важной. Однако, в России, хотя на неё и ссылаются в соответствующих публикациях, саму работу, как и статью в QI, мало кто видел, ссылаются, в данном случае уже по привычке. Подумалось, как первому соавтору, что пора её выставить с сохранием всех авторских прав издательства и  журнала. На фотографии Артёма Головина - дилювиальные валы-бары в устье р.

Rudoy, A.N. and Baker, V.R., 1993. Sedimentary effects of cataclysmic late Pleistocene glacial outburst flooding, Altay Mountains, Siberia. In: C.R. Fielding (Editor), Current Research in Fluvial Sedimentology. Sediment. Geol., 85: 53-62.

Pleistocene glacial outburst floods were released from ice-dammed lakes of the Altay Mountains, south-central Siberia. The Kuray-Chuja lake system yielded peak floods in excess of 1×106 m3 /s  and as great as 18×106 m3/ s. The phenomenally high bed shear stresses and stream powers generated in these flows produced a main-channel, coarse-grained facies of coarse gravel in (1) foreset-bedded bars as much as 200 m high and several kilometers long, and (2) degradational, boulder-capped river terraces. Giant current ripples, 50 to 150 m in spacing, composed of pebble and cobble gravel, are locally abundant. The whole sedimentary assemblage is very similar to that of the Channeled Scabland, produced by the Pleistocene Missoula Floods of western North America.


In July 1991, the authors investigated evidence for Pleistocene cataclysmic flooding in the Altay Mountain region of south-central Siberia. The purpose was to compare the recently documented diluvial morphogenesis of the Altay Mountains (Rudoy, 1988a, 1990; Rudoy et al., 1989) with established work on the Channeled Scabland region of North America, which was formed by cataclysmic erosion and sedimentation associated
with outbursts from Pleistocene Lake Missoula (Bretz et al., 1956; Baker, 1973, 1978a; Baker et al., 1987).


In both Eurasia and North America, Pleistocene glaciations are accompanied by the inception and growth of gigantic ice-dammed lakes (Elson, 1992). Recent work at the margins of the former North American ice sheets (Baker and Bunker, 1985; Kehew and Lord, 1987; Teller, 1987) has documented pervasive evidence of Pleistocene cataclysmic outburst floods (j6kulhlaups). Such floods, which are a direct consequence
of deglaciation, may have exerted major short-term influences on global fluxes of water and sediment (Baker, 1993). Shaw (1989) has even proposed that subglacial meltwater may be a major contributor to cataclysmic flooding, although his evidence of fluvially eroded drumlins (Shaw et al., 1989) is disputed by many glaciologists (e.g., Muller and Pair, 1992). In one reconstruction of the late Pleistocene Eurasian ice sheets, Grosswald (1980) envisions spectacular damming of the great north-flowing Siberian rivers with associated spillovers and drainage diversions (Fig. 1). An alternative reconstruction involves much less ponding and diversion (Velichko et al., 1984), but incomplete field mapping and geochronology precludes scientific preference for either of these hypothetical alternatives.

Nevertheless, it is clear that the phenomenon of massive, regionally extensive, highenergy flooding was an important feature of global Pleistocene glaciation. Evidence of such phenomena is to be expected in pre-Quaternary glacial sediments. Physical setting and flood processes The Altay Mountain study area lies in the upper Ob River basin, upstream of the Pleistocene network of Siberian glacial lakes and diversions (Fig. 1). The intermontane depressions of the Altay have long been known to have contained Pleistocene glacial lakes. The two largest Altay Pleistocene lakes occupied the Kuray and Chuja depressions in the headwaters of the Chuja River (Fig. 2). Together these interconnected lakes held at least 1000 km3 during the latest Pleistocene glaciation (Rudoy, 1988a). Water depths reached 600 m with a 900 m stage during an earlier Pleistocene phase (Rudoy et al., 1989). The lake dimensions are comparable to those of Pleistocene Lake Missoula, which held about 2500 km3 at a maximum depth of 635 m at its ice dam (Baker and Bunker, 1985).

Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to
get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly

In an effort to help your self hinder gangstarr vegas hacks in addition to germs, you shoulkd be extremely
cautious with what youu might press or generally significantly look
into in opposition to your gangstar vegas hack and so on web sites general.
Once these form of gangstar vegas hack or maybe pathogen signs occur upon Hub pages, typically, they've
a bearing on plenty of people coupled with travelling right from paal to ensure you chum by customers going to shortcuts.

Undeniably imagine that that you said. Your favourite reason appeared to be
at the internet the simplest thing to have in mind of. I say to you, I
definitely get annoyed at the same time as people think
about issues that they just do not understand
about. You managed to hit the nail upon the
top and also defined out the entire thing without
having side effect , other people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.
Thank you

Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another
platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
