Abstract

Glacio-karst closed depressions are the major large scale karst landforms of the Eastern Massif of the Picos de Europa. During valley glaciation the major depressions functioned as cirques, with smaller depressions also developing in the floor of glacial troughs and in glacier margin locations. The major glacio-karst depressions developed at the locations of pre-glacial features where topo-climatic factors favoured snow accumulation
