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


Key points:

  • Agreement of a “working” definition of rock glaciers (what do we want/need to inventory ?)
  • Standards of 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 InSAR)
