Abstract

The aim of this study was to assess differences in solar radiation on 3 glacial cirques located in the Maladeta Mountain massif, and analyses their implications on glacier development and morphology. A quantitative approach is adopted to obtain the values of solar radiation (direct, diffuse and global radiation), combining several field data parameters (measured at 55 control-points) with the solar radiation modelling package Ecosim. The results are compared with the spatial distribution and morphology of glacial features, and a first estimation of the influence of solar radiation on glaciation/deglaciation processes in the Maladeta massif is thus made
