Record #119468:

Rock glaciers in Svalbard and Norway / Johan Ludvig Sollid, Leif Sørbel.

Title: Rock glaciers in Svalbard and Norway / Johan Ludvig Sollid, Leif Sørbel.
Author(s): Sollid, Johan Ludvig.
Sørbel, Leif.
Date: 1992.
In: Permafrost and Periglacial Processes. (1992.), Vol. 3(3) (1992)
Abstract: Talus rock glaciers are common in Svalbard. Most are active, but stagnant rock glaciers are also found. Stagnation is due to topography, not to climate. In Norway, relic rock glaciers are found in coastal areas in north. Distribution, and other evidence, indicates that these areas had continuous permafrost during Younger Dryas.
