Abstract

This paper analyses the geomorphic processes developed during past decades in the most important glacier valley of Pico de Orizaba: the Jamapa Valley. These processes are due to the rapid retreat of the glacier and to the characteristics of the volcanic materials. Data on the thermic regime of ice cover deposits and their contrast with that of the glacier are presented. A model of the geomorphic evolution of the area below a retreating glacier is summarized
