Deglaciation in high mountain areas triggers a series of adjustments affecting the various geomorphic components of formerly glaciated catchments. Active processes, part of the ‘paraglacial' open system, release and transport sediments from formerly glacierized sources to catchment sinks. Such cascade sedimentary systems may be disrupted by temporary sediments traps. To evaluate the consequences of such traps on sediment export, several test areas were selected, where former glacial geometries… CONTINUE READING
