Glacial valley cross-profile development: the influence of in situ rock stress and rock mass strength, with examples from the Southern Alps, New Zealand

Special issue. Glacial geomorphology: process and form development

Description :
The potential influence of in situ rock stress regimes, rock mass strength of the slope rock, and subaerial processes are considered here in some simple models of glacial trough cross-profiles from the vicinity of the main divide of the New Zealand Southern Alps. Finally, a conceptual model is proposed linking the factors involved in controlling glacial valley cross-profile development. Such a model is required for realistic modelling of valley profile evolution.
