Abstract

Cold room physical modelling of periglacial solifluction processes on an experimental slope of 12° is described, and data on soil temperatures, surface frost heave, thaw consolidation, downslope soil movement and porewater pressures over 7 freeze-thaw cycles are presented. These data are analysed in the context of laboratory determination of the rheometry of the experimental soils at high moisture contents, providing an empirical basis for future predictive analytical techniques. The AA. discuss factors influencing movement rates and mechanisms
