Abstract

The pattern and magnitude of the Pleistocene glaciation in the Sudetes is clearly controlled by the pre-existing, preglacial topography. The simultaneous occurrence of 3 factors is considered necessary for a mountain glaciation to develop : the altitude of the summit parts well above the snow line, large extent of the summit surfaces of low relief and high degree of compactness of these surfaces as defined by their length:width ratio. The occurrence of initial depressions (valley heads) seems not essential if summit deflation surfaces are large enough
