Abstract

This paper describes the results of a five-year study of the physical characteristics and movement of an active rock stream on the north slope of the Kunlun Shan whose thermal regime was previously described. It appears that the surface blocks tend to slide downslope on the icy surface of the underlying blocks, perhaps aided by water from melting snow. This and the lack of sorting by clast size clearly differentiates them from talus slopes or avalanche deposits
