The Anthropocene evolution of the Aral Sea ice gouging derived from the bottom topography
Keywords:level change, ice scours, ice ridges, geomorphological methods, remote sensing
Ice gouging landforms on the exposed bottom of the Aral Sea give a possibility to get a profound knowledge about processes of the ice-bottom interaction during the level fall. We analyzed ice scours in the different parts of the Aral Sea using geomorphological and remote methods and evaluated the paleoreconstruction of ice gouging processes in the Anthropocene.
