Abstract

The aim of this paper is to analyse the geographical value of the documents of the period relating to the Sierra Nevada and, from their content, to ascertain the altitudinal distribution of the ecological and morphogenic environments of the peaks and to compare them with the present-day ones. The period studied covers the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. The most relevant findings indicate that cold climate processes (soli-gelifluction, frost creep and nivation) were more predominant during the 18th and 19th centuries than they are today
