Abstract

This paper focuses on a long-standing debate in rock glacier literature : whether rock glaciers develop mainly from glacial or periglacial processes. It indicates that several previously held concepts of rock glacier dynamics and development should be re-evaluated. In addition, it highlights the need for researchers to move beyond taxonomic arguments, and to improve understanding of fundamental aspects of rock glaciers such as climatic sensitivity, geochemistry, hydrology, dynamics, structure, mass balance, and genetic and spatial variability
