For better understanding the relationship between the fluctuations of glaciers and slope evolution, we have practiced an interdisciplinary approach that integrates geomorphological approach with stress-strain numerical modelling.

Abstract

For better understanding the relationship between the fluctuations of glaciers and slope evolution, we have practiced an interdisciplinary approach that integrates geomorphological approach with stress-strain numerical modelling. In particular, the topic is the analysis of strain effects induced by stress evolution of slopes under time-depending conditions as a response to variation of glacierization levels since the last glacial maximum. Here we presents the preliminary data obtained in the Val Adamè test area, in the Adamello Group (Central Alps), which hosted in the past the southern tongue of the Adamello Glacier, the widest Italian glacier at present.
