Rock glacier inventory, Printse Valley, Valais, Switzerland
Entry ID: GGD291

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Printse Valley is a 16-km-long north-orientated basin. The south-part (summits at 300 m asl) is glacierized. The intermediate sector, more continental, is very rich in rock glaciers. We have inventoried 46 rock glaciers. A second sector is the south-orientated basin of Louvie, in which we have inventoried 25 rock glaciers. For each rock glacier a file exists with different characteristics like orientation, width, length, elevation of the spring and the front, type of form, type of material, activity, lithology, etc. Measurements of spring temperatures and BTS (Bottom temperature under snow cover) exist for some rock glaciers, especially in the Tortin zone (see maps). Data collected during 1992 and 1997. These data are presented on the CAPS Version 1.0 CD-ROM, June 1998.
