Abstract Mass wasting processes in a periglacial environment are considered to result from a combination of frost creep and gelifluction. The relative importance of these processes is often difficult to determine, but appears to be related to factors such as slope angle, soil moisture content, soil texture, and vegetation cover. Further, the importance of any one of these factors can vary from year to year, thereby making long term predictions of slope stability or reconstructions of behaviour… CONTINUE READING
