Abstract

This paper is a geomorphological and sedimentological case study of a typical periglacial river in the alpine and subalpine zone of southern Norway. It focuses on the nature and effects of the sediment sources that contribute to downstream variation in the shape and size of channel bed material. Comparisons are made with the channel form, bed material characteristics and associated sediment sources in temperate river environments. This leads on to an evaluation of the concept of a process-sediment-landform association that can be characterised as a periglacio-fluvial system
