Abstract

Both actuoperiglacial and palaeoperiglacial environments can be defined with regard to their spatial extent only by means of spatial associations of diagnostic periglacial microrelief features and their specific climatic parameters. On these grounds the periglacial environment can be subdivided into regional types which again can be defined by climatic parameters. A map showing the extent and regional differentiation of the present polar periglacial zone, idealized schemes showing its delimitation and subdivision and an idealized profile through the altitudinal periglacial zone are represented.
