Rockglaciers and the High Mountain Environment

  • Dietrich Barsch
Part of the Springer Series in Physical Environment book series (SSPENV, volume 16)


The earlier chapters of this book have summarized available information on rockglaciers in an analytical manner; in contrast, this chapter is intended to draw these parts together in a synthesis. The different aspects of rockglaciers will be discussed as an important subsystem (and integral parts) of high mountain environments.
