Abstract

A long-term approach based on detailed mapping and lichenometry provides additional information concerning talus-foot rock glaciers overstepping raised beaches in Svalbard. Their regional distribution is primarily controlled by the tectonic pattern and especially by the network of major thrusting faults. Tentative dating of the start of the rock glaciers movement combined with data on their longitudinal development allowed to infer average long-term rates of rock glacier movement and to compare them with present-day velocities obtained from monitoring
