Remnants of periglacial mounds in the Hautes Fagnes (Belgium): structure and age of the ramparts

Abstract

A polyhedric structure which appears related to the growth of segregation lenses was seen in several sections. A new C age determination shows that a second mound grew during the last Dryas. The facts suggest a periglacial genesis for the Hautes Fagnes depressions. They are not pingo scars but probably remnants of palsas without peat which are not yet well known today. (L'A.).
