Rock slope failures associated with deglaciation : some examples from glaciated valleys in the Swiss Alps

Auteurs :
MATSUOKA, N.
ABE, M.

Description :
This paper describes some possible examples of paraglacial slope failures, based on observations in the Swiss Alps, and proposes several types and magnitudes of slope response to deglaciation, which may reflect lithology, geological structure, pre-deglaciation topography and the magnitude of deglaciation. Slope failures are broadly classified into new (post-Little Ice Age) and old (postglacial) features.
