Glacial valley cross-profile development: the influence of in situ rock stress and rock mass strength, with examples from the Southern Alps, New Zealand

published at : Special issue. Glacial geomorphology: process and form development

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The potential influence of in situ rock stress regimes, rock mass strength of the slope rock, and subaerial processes are considered here in some simple models of glacial trough cross-profiles from the vicinity of the main divide of the New Zealand Southern Alps. Finally, a conceptual model is proposed linking the factors involved in controlling glacial valley cross-profile development. Such a model is required for realistic modelling of valley profile evolution
