Record #176143:

Blockfields and blockstreams in the Ligurian Alps (Mount Beigua, Italy) / Marco Firpo, Mauro Guglielmin, Cristiano Queirolo.

Title: Blockfields and blockstreams in the Ligurian Alps (Mount Beigua, Italy) / Marco Firpo, Mauro Guglielmin, Cristiano Queirolo.
Author(s): Firpo, Marco.
Guglielmin, Mauro.
Queirolo, Cristiano.
Date: 2005.
In: Geografia Fisica e Dinamica Quaternaria. (2005.), Vol. 28(2) (2005)
Abstract: Analyses eleven block accumulation landforms to explain their genesis and reconstruct area's paleoclimatic evolution. Observed morphological characteristics, particularly surface flow structures and pattern blocks, suggest solifluction, gelifluction or frost creep may be responsible for downvalley movement. Describes deployment in 2003 of thermistors and dataloggers to establish whether periglacial conditions persist in area. Discusses current and past temperatures, frost penetration and accumulation. Estimates time required for blockstreams to form and tentatively attributes them to cryotic conditions during Würm.
