Paraglacial modification of slope form

Auteur :
CURRY, A.M.

Description :
The morphological consequences of paraglacial modification of valley-side drift slopes are investigated at 6 sites in Norway. Here, paraglacial slope adjustment operates primarily through the development of gully systems, whereby glacigenic sediment is stripped from the upper drift slope and redeposited in debris cones downslope. This results in an overall lowering of average gradient along gully axes.
