Multidisciplinary investigations on three rock glaciers in the Swiss Alps: legacies and future perspectives
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Anama Lowday.
ABSTRACT . The multidisciplinary investigations described in this presentation have focused on three rock glaciers, Muragl, Murtèl-Corvatsch and Furggwanghorn, all of which have been subject to a varying degree of prior study, and which are continuing to attract new generations of researchers to understand and explain the processes and predict future behaviour. This presentation marks a stage at which it is possible to summarize some advances in the state of the art and associated innovations. Some thoughts on the development of thermokarst due to water ponding and flow, and a conceptual model of geotechnical mechanisms that aim to explain some aspects of rock glacier kinematics, are also introduced.
