Abstract

Strong annual variability and seasonal snow covers determine hydrological processes and related sediment displacements in high latitude regions. The most significant period for runoff and fluvial sediment transport is the snowmelt period in early summer. Based on the discussion on general aspects of magnitude-frequency relations, atmospheric triggering and resulting hydrologic and geomorphic events in periglacial environments are analyzed with special focus on drainage basins in NW-Spitsbergen and in N-Sweden
