Abstract

This paper illustrates the significant role of fluvial processes through time, in a key sector of the northern Alps. Emphasis is put on the interaction between fluvial and glacial processes during the Upper Pleistocene and on the related glacial and postglacial development of valley systems. The morphology of mixed-type valleys is highly persistent, as it had developed before and was maintained during the Upper Pleistocene. The topographic position of these valleys and their fills can be used for the reconstruction of palaeoclimatical parameters. Former snowline positions can be linked to ice-surface altitudes and to the geochronology of the Rhine Glacier system
