Abstract

The extent of permafrost in 9 talus slopes located within the alpine periglacial belt in the western Swiss Alps was investigated using ground surface temperature measurements and one-dimensional geoelectrical profiles. The cooling of the ground in the lower parts of some of the talus slopes investigated was apparently due to the chimney effect. It is inferred that this mechanism plays an important role in permafrost development in the lower half of talus slopes located within the discontinuous mountain permafrost belt
