Abstract

An inventory of rock glaciers in the Adamello-Presanella Group is presented. The distribution, behaviour and morphological characteristics of rock glaciers are desribed and organized in a GIS. Furthermore, the AA. analyse the relationship between rock glaciers and vegetation and tentatively discuss that between rock glacier distribution and climatic parameters. In conclusion, it is necessary to be cautious in using the regional mean annual air temperature (MAAT) for identifying active forms and in utilizing the position of rock glacier fronts for reconstructing the regional MAAT
