Abstract

This study discusses an apparently unreported geomorphic effect caused by off-road vehicles (ORV's) in a tropical periglacial area, the Páramo de Piedras Blancas (Venezuelan Andes). The role of needle ice in transporting pebbles to hollow depressions is discussed and illustrated with other examples of recent patterned ground from this paramo
