Three different geophysical techniques (shallow seismic refraction, ground-penetrating radar (GPR) and electrical resistivity tomography)were used to develop a detailed subsurface model of the Green Lake 5 rock glacier in the Colorado Front Range, USA. Results and discussion. The model of the internal structure was used to evaluate an existing hydrological flowpath model based on the hydrochemical properties of water outflow from the rock glacier. In conclusion, the AA. discuss the implications for future hydrological studies
