Abstract: Snow, glaciers and permafrost in cold mountain areas such as the Swiss Alps are
especially sensitive to changes in environmental conditions due to their
proximity to melting conditions. In addition, mass wasting is most intensive in
those mountain areas with high relief energy. Environmental changes in high
mountain regions substantially influence the potential for glacial ... View entire text
