Description :
The AA. compared karren formation of various slopes (3 bare slopes and 2 with a plant patch) in a glacier valley close to Tragl peak (in Totes Gebirge, Austria). It could be established that bare slopes have a larger average specific width, channel shape and channel density. The dynamics of karren features are different on the bare slopes and slopes fed from a plant patch. Karren features tend to widen on bare slopes, while they tend to deepen on slopes with a plant patch. The specific width is greater on slope with Pinus mugo than on slopes with a grass patch, and the specific cross-section area of the channel is also greater. Hence the solution intensity is higher on slopes fed from Pinus mugo than on slopes fed from a grass patch.
