Description :
In this study, the AA. address the impact of air and water fracture flow on the temperature field of an alpine rock slope at 2400 m a.s.l. in southern Switzerland. They first approximate the conductive temperature field based on distributed measurements, highlighting deep steady temperatures and different transient effects. Then they discuss observations and mechanisms of convective disturbances by both air and water flow in deep fractures, and conclude by commenting on implications for rock slope instabilities.
