Los campos de bloques en montañas del noroeste de la península Ibérica: génesis y significado paleoambiental / M. Valcárcel Díaz, Augusto Pérez Alberti.

Title: Los campos de bloques en montañas del noroeste de la península Ibérica: génesis y significado paleoambiental / M. Valcárcel Díaz, Augusto Pérez Alberti.
Translated title: Blockfields in the mountains of the north-west of the Iberian peninsula: genesis and palaeoenvironmental significance.
Author(s): Valcárcel Díaz, M.
Pérez Alberti, Augusto.
Date: 2002.
Publisher: Valladolid, Spain: Universidad de Valladolid. Departamento de Geografía
Language: Spanish.
In: Periglaciarismo en montaña y altas latitudes. (2002.),
Abstract: Describes blockfields in areas of Xistral, M. Fonsagrada, Ancares, Courel y Cebreirio, Queixa and Trevinca. Reports blockfields common, mainly on quartzites and granites. Discusses nomenclature and taxonomy, and blockfield genesis (periglacial in all cases, fitting Ballantyne's definition of mountain-top detritus). Discusses palaeoenvironmental significance of blockfields and rock glaciers in area of Penalonga. Concludes blockfield distribution and relationship with other palaeoenvironmental indicators, such as fossil rock glaciers, indicate existence of permanently frozen ground during Late Pleistocene. Proposes use of block fields as indicators of continuous permafrost.
