Abstract

This article introduces an analysis of two examples of cryogenic landforms - a rock glacier and a protalus rampart in the high-mountain zone of the Tatra Mountains. Field geomorphological research and airphoto interpretation helped in the description of substantial forms developed during the Late Glacial, both in the area affected by mountains glaciation and in a non-glaciated area. This gives rise to a question as to which area (glaciated or non-glaciated) was more affected by periglacial processes during the last glaciation. The most spectacular protalus ramparts have been recognised in areas representing remnants of the preglacial rather that the glaciated Tatra landscape (i. e. Liptovské kopy). The characteristics of these forms are similar to the protalus ramparts described in European, Japanese and North American mountains. - (BJ)
