The aim of Task 1 is the definition of widely accepted standard guidelines for inventorying (mapping) rock glaciers, including indications of the activity rate

 

Key points:

  • Agreement on a “working” definition of rock glaciers (what do we want/need to inventory ?)
  • Standards for inventorying (definition of key attributes), e.g. point location, outlining, etc… -> Inventorying strategy
  • Practical guidelines for inventorying rock glaciers (e.g. also including the use of kinematics)
