Abstract

The characteristics of these events in the arctic-oceanic Latnjavagge drainage basin in northern Swedish Lapland are analysed and compared with snowmelt and rainfall-induced runoff peaks in the Krasnaya river system in arctic northern Siberia. The results from these both arctic periglacial environments underline the high importance of high-magnitude/low-frequency fluvial events for the total fluvial sediment budgets of periglacial fluvial sediments. Restricted sediment avaibility is in both arctic environments the major controlling factor for this behaviour
