Abstract

A large talus-foot debris accumulation on Muckish Mountain is interpreted as a fossil rock glacier rather than a glacial moraine as previously suggested. Sedimentological characteristics indicate that the debris accumulated initially as talus. Rock glacier flow probably occurred due to the deformation of interstitial ice and ice lenses. The major stages in the development of the fossil rock glacier are outlined in a simple model
