Abstract

Mountain constitute the Earth's third pole, because they hypsometrically repeat the climate zones as far as the Arctic within smallest space. For this reason, the vertical distance and relief energy are characteristic and distinguishing features of any classification of mountains. But when taking such basic features into consideration, geomorphologists, glaciologists and geobotanists have to define mountain-typological threshold values in a new way. - (IfL)
