Age and development of active cryoplanation terraces in the alpine permafrost zone at Svartkampan, Jotunheimen, southern Norway (2019)
Journal Article
Matthews, J. A., Wilson, P., Winkler, S., Mourne, R. W., Hill, J. L., Owen, G., …Geary, A. P. (2019). Age and development of active cryoplanation terraces in the alpine permafrost zone at Svartkampan, Jotunheimen, southern Norway. Quaternary Research, 92(3), 641-664. https://doi.org/10.1017/qua.2019.41

Schmidt-hammer exposure-age dating (SHD) of boulders on cryoplanation terrace treads and associated bedrock cliff faces revealed Holocene ages ranging from 0 ± 825 to 8890 ± 1185 yr. The cliffs were significantly younger than the inner treads, which...

© 2018, The Author(s) 2018. Red wood ant nest mounds were investigated on terrain deglaciated since the mid-18th century at three outlet glaciers of the Jostedalsbreen ice cap in southern Norway. Chronosequence methodology was combined with a geo-eco...

Environmental controls on the spatial and temporal distribution of testate amoebae in two British minerotrophic mires (2014)
Thesis
Geary, A. P. Environmental controls on the spatial and temporal distribution of testate amoebae in two British minerotrophic mires. (Thesis). University of the West of England

This is the first study in the British Isles detailing the spatial and temporal distribution and controls on testate amoebae within minerotrophic brown-moss dominated mires. The study covers a full annual cycle at two mires, Max Bog in North Somerset...
