Abstract

External air temperature (EAT) and the interior temperature of the talus (IT) were measured for one yeat at two low elevation scree slopes in the Sudeten Mountains, central Europe. Similar measurements were made at an ice-cave beneath a talus and supplemented by cave-floor temperature (CGT). The year-round interplay between EAT, IT and CGT can be subdivided into 4 periods : winter cooling, spring warming, summer and autumn. The differences between EAT and IT cause annual air circulation between the scree voids. Patchy permafrost probably occurs at these scree locations in spite of mean annual air temperatures
