Abstract

A major objective of this paper is to review the most important catastrophic geomorphic processes linked to climate-induced glacier ice loss, with examples mainly from the mountains of western Canada. Further, the AA. explore how recent glacier ice loss has affected the frequency of catastrophic events and stability thresholds, and they speculate on the amplitude and wave-length of pertubations to mountain geomorphic systems caused by climatic warming
