  • Paraglacial modification of slope form
  • 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

  • Rates and magnitudes of paraglacial fan formation in the Garhwal Himalaya : implications for landscape evolution
  • This paper will describe the timing and rates of paraglacial processes in the upper Bhagirathi valley, thus providing a framework for the evolution of the Himalayan landscapes.
  • Paraglacial modification of glacigenic sediment
  • The sedimentological characteristics of in situ and paraglacially reworked till are compared at recently deglaciated sites in Norway, to evaluate sedimentological criteria that may differentiate in situ from paraglacially reworked glacigenic

  • Particle size analysis and scanning electron microscopy have been used with some success to differentiate sediments sampled from varying geomorphological environments. In the paraglacial environment, however, discrimination of paraglacially reworked
  • deposist from in situ glacigenic deposits has proven to be problematic. The AA. consider till sediments that have been reworked by paraglacial debris flows and in situ, unreworked parent material, and apply a series of quantitative techniques in an attempt
  • to discriminate samples from each environment on the basis of particle-size and micro-textural characteristics. Differentiating glacial from paraglacial deposits is likely to yield the most reliable results where rigorous statistical analyses are combined
  • Unraveling paraglacial activity on Sierra de Gredos, Central Spain : A study based on geomorphic markers, stratigraphy and OSL

  • The AA. use luminescence signals from debris flow and fluvial deposits as well as OSL dating of 3 deposits to detect the main paraglacial processes in Gredos Gorge, a glaciated valley of Sierra de Gredos (Central Spain). They identify 2 major phases
  • of paraglacial activity during and after the retreat of Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) glaciers. The first phase consisted of high discharge debris flows, sourced up-valley, triggered during the deglaciation. The second phase started ~ 11 ka and is characterized by 2
  • processes : (1) the triggering of low discharge debris flows sourced on the flanks of moraines, and (2) the reworking of paraglacial deposits by rivers. The results of OSL signals, stratigraphy markers and sediment volume indicate that during and after
  • the deglaciation of Gredos Gorge, paraglacial sediment was depleted as theory predicts. The AA. propose that the poor coverage of vegetation driven by the Mediterranean climate prevents the stabilization of glacigenic sediment that is only mobilized during high
  • Paraglacial gullying of sediment-mantled slopes: a case study of Colletthøgda, Kongsfjorden area, West Spitsbergen (Svalbard)

  • This paper evaluates the paraglacial evolution of a sediment-mantled slope in a polar maritime environment. The intensity of paraglacial processes is estimated through quantification of erosion and dating of field sectors with the help
  • to stabilization of the ground surface and the drying up of the ground surface due to dead-ice melting. The full sequence of paraglacial slope adjustment (gully incision-stabilization) may occur rapidly at the study site, (two decades). Finally, a lateral
  • morphogenic sequence is proposed showing the importance of paraglacial processes at the onset of the deglaciation.

  • Paraglacial conditions of instability and mass movement. A discussion
  • interpretation is stressed. Engineering studies, which have long recognized the importance of catastrophic rock slides and avalanches, serve as models for the development of hypothesis that instability and mass movement characterized the paraglacial environment.

  • In order to evaluate how glacial and paraglacial environments in mountains are likely to respond to future climate change, the AA. consider how these environments have responded to climate change in the past (the last glacial–interglacial transition
  • , and the Little Ice Age). From this, they may anticipate the likely responses of glacial and paraglacial environments in mountains to global warming over coming decades. The AA. show that future changes in glacial and paraglacial environments, in particular

  • The AA. review the meaning of the term paraglacial as defined in the Anglo-Canadian literature between 1972 and the present. They then show that many of these ideas were implicit in the early-twentieth-century German literature but were never
  • synthesized into an overarching framework for the study of post-glacial glaciated landscapes. It was not until the end of the twentieth century that the paraglacial model was directly applied to the interpretation of the European Alps. The first decade
