Group: Summary

   This study and inventory of active rock glaciers was carried out by means of 
   the usual techniques used in the study of alpine permafrost. First, the rock 
   glaciers were located by means of aerial photography and field work. Second, a 
   detailed geomorphological map was prepared, to detect the active processes in 
   each rock glacier. This includes geotransect and surface analysis (clast 
   roundness, clast forms, particle orientation and lichenometric measurements). 
   Third, complementary measurements (water temperature and BTS [bottom 
   temperature of snow] measurements) were carried out. These three studies 
   allowed us to determine the activity or inactivity of previously detailed 
   landforms, and to classify them as active, inactive, or relict rock glaciers. 
   The external landforms, frontal slope, vertical organization, flow forms, 
   absence of lichens and the descriptive parameters of rock glaciers allowed us 
   to classify them as relict or active ones.  On the Besiberri, Gemelos, and 
   Argualas rock glaciers we have carried out photogrammetric studies, and on the 
   Argualas rock glacier we carried out a topographic survey from 1991 and also 
   geoelectric soundings (San Jose et al. 1992; Serrano et al. 1995; Fabre et al. 
   1995). These data are presented on the CAPS Version 1.0 CD-ROM, June 1998.

   Added version number and authors to the citation. When this record got moved 
   from the MDDB to the EDB, the authors needed to be re-entered. Because this 
   wasn't done, the catalog page wouldn't render the data contributors or
