Rockglacier acceleration in the Turtmann valley (Swiss Alps): probable controls / Isabelle Roer, Andreas Kääb, Richard Dikau.

Title: Rockglacier acceleration in the Turtmann valley (Swiss Alps): probable controls / Isabelle Roer, Andreas Kääb, Richard Dikau.
Author(s): Roer, Isabelle.
Kääb, Andreas.
Dikau, Richard.
Date: 2005.
In: Norsk Geografisk Tidsskrift. (2005.), Vol. 59(2) (2005)
Abstract: Discusses temporal variations in mountain permafrost creep within regional study of rock glacier kinematics. Notes acceleration recorded since early 1990s on all investigated active rock glaciers in Turtmann valley. Investigates link between surface velocities and temperature development at regional and local scales. Regional speed-up fits well with general increase in air temperature. On local scale, pattern of BTS (bottom temperature of winter snow cover) coincides well with surface-velocity pattern, but in high-velocity areas BTS temperatures are below -3°C. Concludes marginal permafrost not indicated, and high velocities probably not due to permafrost "warming". In special issue Permafrost geomporphological systems in a changing global climate, edited by Ole Humlun and Ketil Isaksen.
