Abstract

The glacial and periglacial geomorphology for the Simen and Bale Mountains in Ethiopia is reviewed. The Simen Mountains are mostly absent of relict perglacial landforms and today host a variety of miniature cryogenic phenomena. The Bale Mountains host a few localized large relict cryogenic landforms (e.g. stone stripes), suggesting past sporadic permafrost. A variety of regional factors may have contributed to the more extensive periglacial activity in southern Ethiopia than in the higher Simen Mountains to the north
