Group: Summary

   The rock glacier 'Macun 1' is located in the Lower Engadine, Grisons, Swiss 
   Alps and reaches from about 2720 m asl down to 2610 m asl. It has been 
   surveyed by Dietrich Barsch and his co-operators from 1965 until 1997. The 
   results of these measurements are displayed in tables within publications. The 
   investigators intend to continue the survey in intervals of at least every 
   three years. The horizontal displacement, which was rather constant between 
   1967 and 1988, has increased remarkably in the last years (Zick 1996). These 
   data are presented on the CAPS Version 1.0 CD-ROM, June 1998.
