Abstract

In periglacial, northern areas debris slides and flows are mainly initiated by intense rainfall in summer and autumn, caused either by cyclonic rainstorms or by convectional rainfall cells. The frequency of landslide-triggering rainstorms in arctic mountains is low, but their effects on the slope forms and deposits can be long-lasting due to very slow regrowth
