Conditions of formation of stratified screes, Slims River valley, Yukon Territory : a possible analogue with some deposits from Belgium

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Stratified scree is forming on 34-45° north-facing slopes in gullies in the Kluane Lake area of the St. Elias Range of the Yukon Territory. A remarkably similar Pleistocene deposit occurs at Noiseux in Belgium. Detailed examination of the deposits from the Ykon and Noiseux shows that they have essentially similar characteristics, suggesting that the main deposit at Noiseux formed in the same way from frost-shattered Famenne siltstone with small quantities of loess. The deposit remaining today represents the sediments at the toe of this scree. Thus climatic conditions at Noiseux during part of the Late Pleistocene were similar to those found today at Kluane Lake
