The aim of Task 1 was the definition of widely accepted 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)
