Abstract

A model is proposed for gelifluction rates, in terms of active layer depths and sub-surface runoff. It has been applied, using a global database of monthly climate, to estimate regional variations in gelifluction rates under current conditions, and with both increases and decreases in mean temperatures. It is concluded that wide bands, roughly between 40-65°N and S, should have experienced a period of very intense gelifluction during the postglacial warming
