Session on “Rock glacier identification, dynamics, and
Rock glaciers are found in high alpine regions around the
world. While publications on their hydrological importance are limited,
available research suggests that they are important water reservoirs and may
significantly contribute to streamflow in some regions. With a growing
scientific interest in rock glaciers, there is a need to standardize
inventories and classification schemes. We invite you to submit abstracts
related to rock glacier identification, dynamics and hydrological importance.
For example, studies focused on inventories and classification of rock
glaciers/permafrost landforms , rock glacier ice volume, their contribution to
streamflow, or impact on water flow paths.
