Abstract

Rock glaciers are developed at permafrost areas of periglacial environment in Tianshan Mountains. Based on field surveying and air-photo interpretation, the paper discusses the shape, characteristics of supply area, formation conditions and environmental differentiations of rock glaciers at head area of Urmqi River in Kalawuchen Range and the head areas of Touado River and Danangou River in Yilanhabierga Range at Shawan County. Formation conditions and morphological characteristics of rock glaciers are studied in terms of topographic conditions, climate, composition and age
