Abstract

The aims of this study are to describe some of the slope forms and processes characteristics of the west coast of Spitsbergen, and to obtain quantitative data on the relations between solifluction, creep rates and the summer climate. Special attention is paid to the depth of the active layer that has been monitored parallel both at the slope sites and within the International Permafrost Association's CALM (circumpolar active layer monitoring) sites. The macroclimate is covered by data from Kapp Linné for the period 1912 to 2004. The slope processe respond clearly to the deeper active layer. The effect is clearest during the last decade when solifliction and creep rates increased significantly
