Abstract

The composition of rock glaciers was sounded by a combination of conventional geophysical methods near the lower limit of mountain permafrost in the Swiss Alps. P-wave velocity, direct current (DC) resistivity and year-round ground surface temperatures were measured on 32 talus-derived rock glaciers. The combination of these methods provides reliable thermal and structural information on subsurface deposits. In addition, mean annual ground surface temperatures are equally good indicators of the distribution of permafrost as bottom temperatures of snow
