Record #163330:

La désagrégation des roches et les chutes de pierres en milieu de montagne polaire (Longyearbyen, Spitsberg) / Angélique Prick.

Title: La désagrégation des roches et les chutes de pierres en milieu de montagne polaire (Longyearbyen, Spitsberg) / Angélique Prick.
Translated title: Rock weathering and rock falls in a polar mountain environment (Longyearbyen, Spitsbergen).
Author(s): Prick, Angélique.
Date: 2003.
Language: French.
In: Géographies : Bulletin de l'Association de Géographes Français. (2003.), Vol. 80(1) (2003)
Abstract: Slopes are undergoing mass movements that can lead to disaster. Sandstone and shale rock wall is monitored in order to understand better relationship between rock temperature, moisture content, weathering and occurrence of rock falls. Frost damage conditions are rare. No evidence was found of frequent thermal shocks. Cryogenic weathering is thought to occur by wedging. Rock fall activity was measured using sediment traps and by monitoring weathering of painted squares. Largest falls occurred when conditions favoured cryogenic weathering.
