Short Name:

Rock glaciers Gruben, Muragl and Murtel, Switzerland: Area-wide flow fields, Version 1

Besides their thermal and mechanical properties, rock glaciers are essentially defined by their kinematics. Knowledge of the permafrost flow field provides important information about the origin, morphology, development, dynamics and internal structure of creeping mountain permafrost. Monitoring permafrost behavior helps detecting climate signals. Aerial photogrammetry was used for determining digital terrain models (DTM) with high resolution.
