Abstract

Contrary to the well-studied Pleistocene glaciation, periglacial phenomena in Slovenia have been given less scientific attention because they are not particularly evident in high mountains due to prevailing carbonate rocks. This, however, is not the case in the Pohorje Mountains : built of igneous and metamorphic rocks, it was not glaciated due to its insufficient elevation, but was subject to periglacial processes. In the article, some of the periglacial landforms of the Pohorje mountains are presented for the first time, especially nivation hollows in the uppermost zone, and the Jezere cirque where a smaller glacier, unknown until recently, existe at the peak of the glaciation. - (IKR)
