LATE PLEISTOCENE HISTORY RECONSTRUCTION BASED ON THE MASSIVE GROUND ICE ORIGIN IN THE ARCTIC COASTAL ZONE.
Massive ground ice database is under compilation in HTML format, which gives the opportunity to browse it using any JAVA -browsers. So it can be used at any PC. Encarta Interactive World Atlas 2001 was used as an index map for positioning the sites covered by data (publication).
Arctic zone of this map is subdivided into 12 polygons / regions. Borders of polygons are line convenient for PC usage. User choosing one of the polygons according to his regional interests, find a separate sheet linked through the point on the map with the list of references, relevant to this point (having more or less the same geographical coordinates ). Reference ends with a numbers of key worlds. In additions to reference database contains abstract to some reference, published table and figure with information on morphology, morphometry, chemical composition of ice and enclosing deposits, isotope composition of ice. Figures (scanned in one of easy – accessible format) present geological sections and graphs. Brows through other map sheets can be done without returning to the main map. The study presented was supported by INTAS, grant #97-0484.
