About this book

Rockglaciers are the visible expressions of the creep of mountain permafrost. They are indicative of special geo-ecologic and geomorphic conditions regarding thermal situation, talus production, hydrology, and hazards in high mountian environments of all major systems on earth. This book presents a systematic treatment of this landform in an environmental context.
