Abstract

This paper describes observations of rockfall activity in Hosozawa Cirque in the Japanese Alps, from 1984 to 1998. The period includes intensive observations of both rockfalls and rock temperatures for 3 years (1993-1995). Rock debris transported onto snow surfaces was measured during seasonal thawing periods. Discussion is focused on the mechanism of rockfall generation and controls of the dimension of rockfall debris
