This paper discusses shallow eroded areas in Tyrol (Austria). From this analysis, it transpired that by far the regions with most eroded areas are found in the northern, limestone dominated regions of Tyrol. Moreover, the results indicate that the majority of all recorded shallow eroded areas seemed to be caused by snow movement what can be deduced from certain location parameters (e.g. aspect, inclination), shape and shallow depth of erosion. Nevertheless in individual cases there are uncertainties in concluding on the forming processes based on the mentioned properties of the shallow eroded areas
