Record #119478:

Rock glaciers and periglacial phenomena in the southern Carpathians / Petru Urdea.

Title: Rock glaciers and periglacial phenomena in the southern Carpathians / Petru Urdea.
Author(s): Urdea, Petru.
Date: 1992.
In: Permafrost and Periglacial Processes. (1992.), Vol. 3(3) (1992)
Abstract: Highest frequency and most complex of rock glaciers are found in granites and granodiorites within northerly cirques and valleys of Paring and Retezat mountains of Romania, whereas less frequent and predominantly embryonic protalus rampart-type forms occur in epimetamorphic schists. Water temperatures below 2°C of springs emerging in summer from fronts of some rock glaciers point to local permafrost conditions still existing today.
