Altitudinal trends of talus-derived lobate rock glaciers on Disko, central West Greenland

Auteur :
HUMLUM, O.

Description :
Talus-derived lobate (TDL) rock glaciers follow the altitudinal trend of the equilibrium line (ELA) on contemporary glaciers, and based on an analysis of a cross-section, North Disko, it is suggested that the vertical distance between the zone of TDL-rock glaciers and the lowermost occurrence of tongue-shaped rock glaciers relate to the amount of precipitation.
