Rock glacier Macun 1, Lower Engadin, Switzerland, Version 1

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.

This is the most recent version of these data.
