The Formation of Dirt Cones on Mount Ruapehu, New Zealand

L. O. Krenek
1958 Journal of Glaciology  
AbstractDue to the abnormally warm summers of 1955 and 1956 the glaciers of Mount Ruapehu deteriorated to such an extent that the ash layer of the eruption of 1945 was exposed everywhere. This caused a development of ice cones similar to those occurring in Iceland. Various factors, especially heavy crevassing, which took place at the same time, are responsible for the different ways of development of dirt cones on Ruapehu.
