Abstract

The cyclic development of palsas is not caused by climatic changes| the critical factor is the thickness of snow cover which is controlled by wind drift. Other periglacial phenomena are connected with, and formed by seasonal frost. Such are turf hummocks, string bogs, patterned grounds of different types, sand and soil wedges, stone stripes, gelifluction terraces, frost weathering, deflation and dune formation, and phenomena produced by river and lake ice.
