Abstract

A review is made of earlier work and theories on a formation of string mires, together with a report on detailed investigations carried out over seven years on a small string mire in eastern Finland, to determine the applicability of earlier hypotheses on the explanation of string and pool patterning. The AA. believe the importance of frost action, ice expansion and solifluction on the development of string and pool patterns is frequently overestimated.
